'Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie' won't be getting a sequel but Jennifer Saunders has teased it doesn't signal the end for Eddie and Patsy's misadventures
Jennifer Saunders won't follow up 'Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie' with a sequel.
The 57-year-old writer and creator of the comedy film, who plays Edina 'Eddie' Monsoon alongside Joanna Lumley's Patsy Stone, has shut the door on speculation a second movie is on the cards.
A number of big names have cameos in the movie including Mad Men's Jon Hamm, Kate Moss, Cara Delevingne, Stella McCartney, Lulu and Graham Norton, and probed on whether she was planning to write star-studded title about the champagne swigging fashionistas, she said: "I'm not planning a sequel at all, no. This is it!"
However, Joanna seemed less certain it's the last we'll see of the best friends.
During an interview with her co-star, she quipped: "I am!"
Despite her determination to not sign herself up for a feature-length film, Jennifer insisted publicist Eddie will always be a part of her and the movie does not signal a "farewell".
She told LOOK magazine: "They're always with us ... I'll get a GoPro and come round to (Joanna's) house."
Meanwhile, Joanna said people were disappointed when they realised the liquid in their champagne flutes on the set of the film were filled with ginger beer and not booze.
The 70-year-old actress said: "People wanted us to be slaughtered! I rather wish it could be true, though, there were moments where we'd say, 'Could we have a real bottle here?' "
Jennifer agreed: "This is the only sad thing, we don't drink at all."
