Jennifer Saunders, a.k.a. Eddy Monsoon, revealed recently to the Hollywood industry website Deadline, that she will write an AbFab feature film with a targeted 2012 release. Designed to coincide with the series’ 20th anniversary, the BBC Film production will reportedly open with Edina (Jennifer Saunders) and Patsy (Joanna Lumley) waking up, hungover (surprise, surprise), aboard an oligarch’s otherwise deserted yacht – afloat in the middle of the ocean.
One can only hope that Julia Sawalha (Saffy), June Whitfield (Mrs. M) and Jane Horrocks (Bubble) will return.
For those that have been playing along at home the past several months, 2012 is going to an ‘absolutely fabulous’ year, according to the British Comedy Guide, with three new specials being filmed this past Fall. The first two will broadcast as part of the BBC One Christmas schedule, with the third, an Olympics special, likely to be screened in July or August 2012.
Can’t wait for more ‘classic AbFab‘…You?
