Hold on to your seats ladies and gentlemen, it looks like Eddie and Patsy are headed to the big screens.
Absolutely Fabulous creator and actress Jenner Saunders, has finally confirmed the news everyone has been waiting for.
On Saturday, Mirror UK reported that the screenwriter has finished her first draft and the movie will be released as early as 2015.
According to the site, Saunders said, that after 20 years of procrastination, she's finished the first draft and she's feeling euphoric.
"My proper New Year's resolution is to do the film, otherwise it'll be a pointless year of procrastination."
Saunders also confirmed that cast favorites Joanna Lumley, Julia Sawalha and June Whitfield would be portraying their original roles in the new movie.
The actress has also suggested that she wants to bring back all of the stars who appeared in the show to cameo in the film.
While it's apparent that fans will get the chance to reunited with Eddie and Patsy, Saunders recently told Jonathan Ross "it's like the second album syndrome"
"Once you've had a bit of success, the last thing you want to do is go and make a flop. So the biggest fear in me is that it won't be good enough. I'm really nervous about it."
Saunders developed the popular series alongside comedian Dan French and the show originally ran between 1992 and 1996 and later retuned from 2001 until 2004.
The comedy series returned to TV screens yet again for two 20th anniversary specials in Dec. 2011 and July 2012.
