Oh darling, this is such absolutely fabulous news!
The divine bitches from the British sitcom Absolutely Fabulous are about to make their way onto the big screen!
Jennifer Saunders, the creator and co-star of Ab Fab, says she’s ready to write the screenplay for the highly anticipated flick that has been rumored about for more than 3 years now!
So what’s been the hold up?! Are the real life Patsy and Edna as sauced out of their minds as they are on TV?
No, it wasn’t quite a hangover that kept Jennifer from tackling this project. She’s just worried that the film adaptation won’t be as good as the television show!
Saunders spilled in an interview over the weekend, saying:

Well, if she's turned them down so consistently over the years, we doubt she'll be crying about this now!
With the third episode of the current Absolutely Fabulous revival wrapped up just in time for the London Olympics, and a movie version in the works, creator Jennifer Saunders has revealed that despite having quite a few celebrity cameos on the series throughout the years, the only one to be banned is none other than Madonna!
But only because she always says no when they invite her!

Oh yes, daaahling!
Kate Moss made such an impression on Absolutely Fabulous creator Jennifer Saunders during her cameo on an episode benefiting Sports Relief in the U.K. that she's trying to get the super model to reprise her role in the upcoming AbFab movie.
Saunders had nothing but praise for Kate recently, saying:
"Kate got on so well with the team, we'd love to work with her again. I'm currently writing the movie, so watch this space."
Kate's lovely. She behaved so nicely and was such a sweet person. There was no nonsense. We've done stuff with Kate before and she's been wonderful, so it was great to work with her again. She is honestly probably the least precious person we've had on. I suppose it's because she doesn't have all those hang-ups about her looks like other people. She just threw herself into it and it was wonderful."
Patsy, Edina…and Mossy in the French Riviera?? That IS fabulous!

It feels like the Spice Girls London musical has seriously been in the works FOREVER now!!!
We reported a while back how Jennifer Saunders is writing the musical Viva Forever, featuring hits from the Spice Girls.
Now it seems like disagreements between Mel B and Mel C are the reason why we won’t be seeing it hit the stage any sooner!
