Jennifer Saunders has revealed she wants every guest star who's ever appeared in 'Absolutely Fabulous' to appear in the movie version, including Kate Moss and Sir Elton John
Jennifer Saunders is planning a star-studded cast for the 'Absolutely Fabulous' movie.
The 56-year-old comedienne is working on a film spin-off of her classic sitcom and she has revealed she wants every guest star that's been in the show - including Kate Moss and Emma Bunton - to reprise their roles.
She said: "I haven't got the storyline completely sorted out yet, but I want to cast everyone who has ever been in the show in it."
The hit sitcom starred Jennifer and Joanna Lumley as boozy fashion industry insiders Edina 'Eddy' Monsoon and Patsy Stone.
The comic confirmed the main cast, also consisting of Julia Sawalha, June Whitfield and Jane Horrocks, would return for the movie.
She told the Daily Telegraph newspaper: "I guess if your name begins with J, you're in. Joanna, Jennifer, Jane, June, Julia - we're all J's."
Other guests who appeared on the show - which aired 39 episodes between 1992 and 2012 - include supermodel Naomi Campbell, Helena Bonham Carter, Idris Elba, Sir Elton John and Jennifer's long-time comedy partner Dawn French.
Jennifer confirmed the movie earlier this year, saying: "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."
