It has been speculated for years – but finally, the AB FAB movie has been confirmed!
Filming has just started in the South of France where Joanna Lumley and Jennifer Saunders are reuniting to film the movie over the next seven weeks.
A press release for the movie says:
Appropriate for their big screen debut, Edina and Patsy are still oozing glitz and glamour, living the high life they are accustomed to; shopping, drinking and clubbing their way around London’s trendiest hotspots. Blamed for a major incident at an uber fashionable launch party, they become entangled in a media storm and are relentlessly pursued by the paparazzi. Fleeing penniless to the glamorous playground of the super-rich, the French Riviera, they hatch a plan to make their escape permanent and live the high life forevermore!
The movie is set to be released in 2016.
