A movie version of Australian comedy series 'Kath & Kim' is to be made.

Jane Turner and Gina Riley will return in their roles as Kath Day-Knight and Kim Craig for the project - entitled 'The Kath & Kim Filum'.

Ruth Harley, chief executive of Screen Australia - who are funding the movie - said: "Australia's comedic sensibility is world renowned and is a distinctive part of our cultural identity. 'The Kath & Kim Filum' represents iconic Australian comedy."

A synopsis for the film confirms the comedy will see the mother and daughter pairing heading to Europe on a "vajazzling, whirlwind tour of love, lust and revolution."

Series director Ted Emery will helm the project.

'Kath & Kim' gained a cult following around the world in its four series, which were broadcast from 2002 to 2007.

Guest stars in the show included Kylie Minogue, Rachel Griffiths and Oscar-nominated actor Geoffrey Rush.

A US version of the series was made starring Molly Shannon and Selma Blair, but it failed to gain the following it had elsewhere.
