'Miranda' is to be turned into a movie.
The third series of the hit sitcom - which stars Miranda Hart as the clumsy shop owner - will climax at Christmas with Miranda finally finding love, with a cliffhanger ending leading the way towards a movie storyline.
A source said: "'Miranda' has been a really popular show and production companies have been floating ideas about making a film for a while.
"The third series sets a movie up perfectly, which is something she has always wanted to do."
The 39-year-old actress is excited about writing the film script and as well as the series' regular cast members - Tom Ellis, Sarah Hadland, Patricia Hodge, Sally Phillips and James Holmes - she is looking to secure some cameo appearances from famous pals.
The source added to The Sun newspaper: "She would keep all the stars of the sitcom on board, and get some of her famous friends in for cameo roles too.
"The idea of casting a film has really got her excited - there's a long list of men she quite fancies finding love with.
"And there is a lot of money in it. The DVDs of the TV series have done brilliantly, so it's a good bet for backers."
