Yup, you read that right: Ab Fab is coming to the silver screen. Deadline reports that Jennifer Saunders is planning to write a movie version of Absolutely Fabulous, just as soon as she finishes Viva Forever, the Spice Girls musical in London. So if there was any question as to whether or not she is currently doing the world's most amazing things, well, now there's not.
Deadline adds: "Ab Fab: The Movie will kick off with Patsy and Edina waking up hungover in the empty drifting yacht of an oligarch in the middle of the ocean. Even worse, their cellphones can't get a signal." Perfect.
