^That sounds exciting!  neutre 

Let's hope that it's not just wishful thinking from Jennifer Saunders but there's an actual, solid deal made and dates planned.
If so:  panik

Our boy keeps himself quite busy.  hapitgh

Considering what a fan Chris is of the show and the mutual admiration society that he and the comediennes have going on, this isn't too much of a surprise but still very welcome and happy news. So this is now two movie that Chris will be doing in the next year.

Am curious to know what they'll have him doing. With his commitment to Glee I'm not sure if it would be a major part but I'd like to see him playing an actual character and not just appearing as "himself".

hiphopa yay give me all the movie projects! I know she's mentioned her interest in having Chris in the film before, and Chris did allude to multiple projects in that interview from the HIC set. Perhaps this is another one that's in the works.

It could very well be.  neutre 

We won't know until the screen play is finished.

If she's just writing the screenplay it could easily be 6 plus months before they actually start filming, at which time Chris will probably be through filming Glee.

it seems very likely he'll be in this movie, unless he has something else lined up then (which is great if it's not Glee).

Just a stupid question: why is the thread title Ad Fab movie and not Ab Fab? Did I miss anything or is it an unfortunate typo ?

It will be probably be corrected later.  neutre

A d is just a backward b, so at least it was close enough.  Smile

Noticed it too, lol. But I'm not one to talk, as in the thread I made about the Noel Coward movie I put "biotopic" in its title instead of "biopic".  blushh
And noone noticed it for many days!    tonguue

Let's be honest... we're all so busy squeeing over Chris being cast and having these opportunities that typos go right past us!

As far as Chris related, I confess as much wishful/hopeful thinking as anything at this point:

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/jennifer-saunders-draft-script-done-761077

Brace yourselves darlings, Eddie and Patsy could be heading to the big screen this year. 
Absolutely Fabulous creator and writer Jennifer Saunders, who also plays the hapless Edina 'Eddie' Monsoon in the long running BBC comedy, told the Sunday People that she has completed a script for the long rumored movie. 
"I’ve finished the first draft. I’m feeling euphoric," she said, adding: "[m]y proper New Year’s resolution is to do the film, otherwise it’ll be a pointless year of procrastination."

She mentioned before she promised a  role for Chris in the planned ABFAB movie so keeping our fingers crossed....

As Chris will probably only get a little role in the movie, and Jennifer will hurry the production so they can start filming before the summer, then maybe Chris can do his part right after he filmed 'Noel'.

Although I don't think he'd mind coming back to London for the Fab Ab movie, but he'll probably has more scheduled this year, so it all comes down to availability and planning.

OK, Chris holds everything close to the vest, but the fact that he specifically again mentioned the AB FAB movie on James Corden's late late show as in Jennifer promised him a role is a very good sign, since we know the screenplay of the AF FAB movie has been completed for months.

Looks very good!

TBH I don't expect a large role but he loves the characters so much I'm sure Chris would be thrilled even with a cameo.
