Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie, which is currently in production, has an illustrious list of guest stars: Joan Collins, Kim Kardashian, Emma “Baby Spice” Bunton and Chris Colfer from Glee. Colfer, now a New York Times bestselling children’s book author, appeared on Larry King Now to talk about his role in the film, EW reports. He will be playing a “hairdresser-slash-social media consultant”—a part Saunders wrote specifically for him.
According to IMBD, the film follows Patsy (Joanna Lumley) and Edina (Jennifer Saunders) “living the high life they are accustomed to; shopping, drinking and clubbing their way around London’s trendiest hot-spots.” Colfer described it to Larry King as “the Real Housewives before the Real Housewives.”
In a recent diary entry for the Spectator, Dame Joan Collins talked about the time she spent on the AbFab film set.
I travelled to the glamorous Grand Hotel du Cap in Antibes to shoot a cameo in the movie of Absolutely Fabulous. I was sworn to secrecy by the publicity department, so my lips are sealed about the plot. However, I can say Mesdames Saunders and Lumley looked extremely fetching in their gloriously overdecorated caftans, adorned with plenty of bling.
Smashing! Get the champers chilled in time for July 2016, when the film is released in theaters.
