Comedienne Jennifer Saunders has revealed at Hay Festival the film adaption of the cult comedy Absolutely Fabulous will be released next year.
Show creator Jennifer, aged 55, who played Edina Monsoon alongside co-star Joanna Lumley, said she was in the process of writing the movie at the Hay Festival.
Glee star Chris Colfer, 23, is expected to be among the stars in the movie.
Jennifer, who was speaking about her book Bonkers: My Life in Laughs, at the Hay Festival, said: “I am writing the film as we speak – it’s in the pipeline.
“I am hoping it will be released by the end of next year.”
She also hit back over her West End show Viva Forever being criticised as a box office flop and said it had pulled in more punters than other productions.
“It was a good idea, of course I was disappointed – had the climate been slightly different (it would have done better),” she said.
“It went on for 10 months and I was very proud of it.”
