Postado Julho 13, 2018

Three years after going off the air, Downton Abbey is coming back as a movie.

Story details are being kept under wraps for now.

Creator Julian Fellowes has written the film's screenplay and will produce alongside Gareth Neame and Liz Trubridge.

Gareth Neame, the film's producer, said, "Now, after getting many stars aligned, we are shortly to go into production. Julian's script charms, thrills and entertains and in Brian Percival's hands we aim to deliver everything that one would hope for as Downton comes to the big screen".

So go find yourself a tux or corset to squeeze into and stay tuned for the movie premiere date.

Downton Abbey started out as a TV series which followed the wealthy Crawley family and those who served them at their country house in early 20th century England. "Film production begins this summer". Brian Percival, who directed the pilot, will also return to helm.

The world of Downton Abbey can be celebrated right now in the first ever fully immersive experience: Downton Abbey: The Exhibition.

Focus chairman Peter Kujawski added: "Since the series ended, fans of "Downton" have always been waiting for the Crawley family's next chapter".

The cast of the TV series was massive, but the main actors were Hugh Bonneville, Maggie Smith, Laura Carmichael, Jim Carter, Brendan Coyle, Michelle Dockery, Elizabeth McGovern, Joanne Froggatt, Phyllis Logan, Lesley Nicol, Sophie McShera, Penelope Wilton, and Rob James-Collier. "Delighted to announce we're getting the band back together!" she tweeted, while Michelle Dockery also shared her joy online, saying that she was "thrilled to announce that #DowntonAbbey is coming to the big screen". Founded in 1978, Carnival's many shows include Poirot, Hotel Babylon, Whitechapel and Dracula, as well as award-winning mini-series such as Traffik, Any Human Heart, The Lost Honour of Christopher Jefferies and The Hollow Crown anthology.
