It seems like we’ve been posting Absolutely Fabulous movie updates for a good two years, probably because we have, but that’s kind of a great thing because it means production is steadily moving along.
We have another Absolutely Fabulous movie update, and it’s a doozy.
The producers of the TV series-turned-movie have confirmed the 2016 release date for July 1, according to Radio Times.
Filming in the U.K. and France is complete, with a recently released statement revealing some details, “Edina (Jennifer Saunders) and Patsy (Joanna Lumley) are still oozing glitz and glamour, living the high life they are accustomed to; shopping, drinking and clubbing their way around London’s trendiest hot spots.”
We wouldn’t expect it any other way.
Their fun times in London are interrupted, but the two take the party to France, with the statement going on to say, “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. Feeling 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 forever more.”
It does make us wonder how they maintain their fabulous ways with empty pockets? That question will most likely be answered when the dynamic duo roll out their plan on screen.
RadioTimes reports Emma Button and Kate Moss have been spotted filming scenes for the Absolutely Fabulous movie. Other stars listed in the film’s credits include Ab Fab co-creator Dawn French, Rebel Wilson, Cara Delevingne, Joan Collins and Kim Kardashian.
Julia Sawalha, Jane Horrocks and June Whitfield are confirmed to reprise their roles as Saffy, Bubble, and Edina’s mum.
