There's a Chance the Downton Abbey Movie Might Actually End Up Being a Prequel

6 July 2017 9:30 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Waiting for the Downton Abbey movie to finally get made is like waiting for Lady Edith to catch a break - there's a good chance it's never going to happen. The British period drama ended its sixth season in the Us in 2016, and ever since, the production team behind the show has been hinting that a feature film will eventually make its way to screens. Although we've fallen for the same song and dance before, it seems like the Downton Abbey movie has officially been given the green light, with the project heading into production next year. "We are working on getting the script right and then we've got to figure out how to get the (cast) together," Michael Edelstein, president at NBCUniversal International Studios, recently told the Associated Press. "Because as you know, people go on and do other things. But we're hopeful to make a movie sometime next year. »

‘Downton Abbey’ Movie Aims for Production in 2018

22 June 2017 2:21 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The much anticipated “Downton Abbey” movie project is moving forward, with the big screen adaptation of the period series set to head into production next year.

The series, which follows the lives of an aristocratic English family, ended its six season run on ITV in the U.K. and PBS in the U.S. in 2015 and 2016 respectively, and the producer of the show, Carnival Films, and its studio owner, NBCUniversal, have frequently spoken about making a “Downton” movie.

Noting a film has been in the works for some time, Michael Edelstein, president at NBCUniversal International Studios, told the Associated Press: “We are working on getting the script right and then we’ve got to figure out how to get the (cast) together. Because as you know, people go on and do other things. But we’re hopeful to make a movie sometime next year.”

Julian Fellowes wrote the TV series and has been working on the script for the movie. Edelstein was talking to AP from the Singapore leg of the “Downton Abbey” exhibition. Cast member at the same event said they did not yet know about the feature project but reacted positively to the news.

Laura Carmichael played one of the aristocrats in the series and told AP: “Well, tell my agent, because we’re still waiting to know. We’re hoping that will happen soon.”

“You’ve got confirmation before us,” said another cast member at the exhibition, Sophie McShera, who played a cook. “We have no idea if that’s happening. But we would all love to be part of the film if it was to happen, for sure.”

An NBCUniversal spokesman confirmed the studio hopes to put the movie into production in 2018.

Downton Abbey Movie Is Officially Happening

21 June 2017 5:17 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Downton Abbey movie is officially happening. The show creator, Julian Fellowes hinted that a movie was likely to happen last week, but didn't offer any other information regarding the subject of the widely successful television series. Downton Abbey ran for six seasons on ITV in the U.K. and on PBS in the United States, collecting Emmy Awards and becoming one of the U.K.'s biggest programs of all time. Fellowes admitted that a script had been worked on, but was waiting on the green light from the studio to make sure it was really going to happen.

The green light has officially turned on for the Downton Abbey movie as the Associated Press reports. NBCUniversal International president, Michael Edelstein had this to say.

"There's a movie in the works. It's been in the works for some time. We are working on getting the script right and then we've got to figure out how to get the (cast) together. Because as you know, people go on and do other things. But we're hopeful to make a movie sometime next year."

Edelstein is in Singapore at a red-carpet event for Downton Abbey: The Exhibition, which features costumes, locations and never-before-seen footage from the television series. Apparently cast members learned of the news after it had been announced. Sophie McShera who plays Daisy Mason said, "Oh, well, you've got the information before us. We have no idea if it's happening." She went on to say that the cast would love to do it, if it happens for sure. Laura Carmichael who plays Lady Edith Crawley was just as surprised and said "Well, tell my agent, because we're still waiting to know, we're hoping it happens soon." Though it came as a surprise, the cast all seems excited at the prospect of a Downton Abbey movie.

The hit historical period drama series ended in 2015 after six seasons and showed the lives of the aristocratic Crawley family in England. The show takes place in between 1912 and 1926 in the fictional Yorkshire estate. Real news from history is depicted in the show, like the sinking of the Titanic, the outbreak of the First World War, the Spanish influenza pandemic, and the Marconi scandal, and more. It was the most watched show on both the U.K.'s ITV and the U.S.'s PBS in addition to becoming a worldwide success.

While rumors of a Downton Abbey movie have been swirling since before the end of the series in 2015, nothing official has been announced until now. But even the official announcement seems to be a little odd since the cast found out about it after it was in the news. It remains to be seen how many actors from the massive ensemble cast that they'll be able to pull for the big screen adaptation, but at least most of the cast has expressed interest and even excitement at the possibility. News is developing, but work is expected to begin next year, so hopefully all of the actors can clear some time for the project. »
