Downton Abbey: Why it had to end after its 6th series

26 March 2015 10:24 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Julian Fellowes and ITV have confirmed that popular drama Downton Abbey will come to an end after this year's sixth series.

The news is pretty huge in the world of television, as it has been consistently one of the UK's biggest shows since its launch in 2010, and has achieved massive success in the Us and beyond.

Downton Abbey: 8 stories we want for series 6

Ending the series was likely to be a very difficult decision for ITV, especially considering its appeal abroad and its continued success at Us award ceremonies, but it was also in danger of hanging around too long.

Julian Fellowes was stuck in a peculiar situation, as he could never have imagined that it would take off in the manner in which it did. UK audiences are used to dramas either lasting for a few series or going on for yonks, while the Us are accustomed to »

Downton Abbey movie is being contemplated, says Gareth Neame

26 March 2015 9:49 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Downton Abbey will end on Christmas Day this year after series six finishes - but we might not have seen the last of the Crawley family.

Speaking to reporters at a press conference to announce the show's end, Downton executive producer and Carnival Films managing director Gareth Neame revealed that a feature film based on the hit ITV show is being considered.

"I can confirm that there have been rumours that there might be a Downton movie," Neame said. "Our position on that is that [Julian Fellowes and I] would be very interested. It is definitely something that we're contemplating.

"It would be great fun to do. I think it would be a wonderful extension of everything people love about the TV show. But I can't confirm that it's definitely going to happen. It would take a lot of planning and thinking about. We shall see."

Neame was less certain of a spin-off happening, »

It’s been a tumultuous several years for The Crow remake, but now, at long last, it may be getting back on track. Jack Huston has just closed his deal to play Eric Draven, a few months after previous star Luke Evans dropped out. And since every Eric needs his Shelly, Jessica Brown Findlay is reportedly […]

Downton Abbey’s Sixth Season Will Be Its Last

23 March 2015 7:50 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One of the more curious television success stories in recent years, ITV and PBS’ massively popular historical soap Downton Abbey, will come to an end after next year’s sixth season, multiple publications are reporting.

The British import, which challenged the likes of NBC’s Winter Olympics and AMC’s The Walking Dead for ratings in its prime, depicted the lives of the aristocratic Crawley family and their servants on the Yorkshire estate of Downton Abbey. Created by Julian Fellowes, it launched the careers of actors like Dan Stevens (now prepping for Disney’s Beauty and the Beast), Lily James (Cinderella), Michelle Dockery (Non-Stop) and Jessica Brown Findlay (Winter’s Tale).

Sources say that the show’s cancelation is mostly for practical reasons, with star Maggie Smith having threatened to leave the series for the past three years and other main actors moving onto bigger projects. Stevens was one of the first to jump ship, »

'Downton Abbey' Will End with Season 6

20 March 2015 6:41 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When PBS announced that Downton Abbey was renewed for Season 6 back in November, the network didn't confirm that the upcoming season would be its last. However, today TV Line is reporting that Season 6 will in fact be the final season. The site reports that the cast members' contracts expire after Season 6, and, with the exception of just one or two actors, the cast is now ready to move on. Here's what an unidentified source told TV Line.

"You can keep the show going without Matthew and Sybill, but you can't continue it without the entire Crawley family."

The source's statement refers to Dan Stevens and Jessica Brown Findlay, who played Matthew and Sybill, both of whom left after Season 3. Both actors have recently made the transition to features, with Dan Stevens starring in The Guest, A Walk Among the Tombstones and Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb last year, »

The Riot Club Review

18 March 2015 12:37 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

“Nothing without joy, everything to excess.” For the 10 members of the all-male cloak and dagger society called The Riot Club, that is a motto to live by. All of them are among the hardest-working students at Oxford University and demand they play just as relentlessly as they work. Several of them are descendants of nobility or the UK’s most powerful political leaders. Fraternizing with any person beneath an upper-class status would be out of the question for several of them. As for ordinary men and women who disagree with their archaic, conservative values: watch out.

If spending time with the most elite of English swills sounds like a fun time at the movies, then The Riot Club should be a must-see. Anyone looking to mock the spoiled rotten virtues of the upper percentile of the 1%, though, will not find too much to heckle here. The film cannot boast the »

The Crow reboot: Jack Huston confirmed to star

16 March 2015 11:04 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The new take on The Crow won't be a remake of the Brandon Lee-headlined movie. And Jack Huston is now confirmed for the lead role.

It finally - finally - looks as though the mooted reboot of The Crow is going to happen. After the part had been linked with the likes of Bradley Cooper, Luke Evans and Tom Hiddleston, it's Boardwalk Empire star Jack Huston who will be taking on the lead role in the movie.

The news was confirmed by the creator of The Crow, James O'Barr, who told Dread Central (and others) that he was "really happy with that choice", when talking about the casting. O'Barr also revealed that, rather than being a straight remake of the 1994 movie, this The Crow will be an adaptation of the original graphic novel. Cliff Dorfman has penned the screenplay.

Joining Jack Huston in the cast, incidentally, is Jessica Brown Findlay (Downton Abbey, »

Jessica Brown Findlay joins Jack Huston in The Crow remake

16 March 2015 1:45 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Coming hot on the heels of the news that Boardwalk Empire star Jack Huston is set to take on the lead role of Eric Draven in Relativity Media’s long-gestating remake of The Crow, it is now being reported that Jessica Brown Findlay (Downton Abbey) will play his fiancee Shelly Webster.

The Crow is being directed by Corin Hardy, who is the latest in a string of directors to be attached. According to The Crow creator James O’Barr, it will be less a remake of the 1994 movie than a straight-up adaptation of his original comic book series, and filming on the project will get underway soon.

Are you glad that The Crow finally seems to be moving forward? Let us know your thoughts…

'Crow' Remake Casts 'Downton Abbey' Star as Eric's Fiancee

16 March 2015 10:57 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Crow comic book creator James O'Barr made an appearance at the Lexington Comic-Con over the weekend, where he confirmed that Jack Huston is playing Eric Draven in the upcoming reboot. During a 45-minute panel session, he also confirmed that Downton Abbey star Jessica Brown Findlay will play Eric's fiancee Shelly Webster. Brandon Lee and Sofia Shinas played Eric and Shelly in the original 1994 adaptation The Crow, which follows Eric as he is brought back to life after he and his fiancee are murdered to exact his revenge. He also spoke about his experiences with Relativity Studios, who is producing the reboot, while offering praise for Jack Huston as Eric Draven.

"Actually, I just came from L.A., straight here. Relativity Studios is producing it. I spent four days with the director, and I'm delighted with it. I've worked on a lot of movies, not a lot of them I'm proud of, »

Jack Huston and Jessica Brown Findlay to Star in 'The Crow'

16 March 2015 9:02 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Crow remake over at Relativity sure has had its share of ups and downs, departures and attachments. Most recently Luke Evans dropped out of starring as the lead character, Eric Draven, a man that rises from the dead to avenge his and his fiancee's death. Now, previous rumors that Jack Huston ("Boardwalk Empire") would pick up where Evans left off appear to have come true. Reported by Dread Central, series creator James O'Barr told the site, "Jack Huston has definitely been cast. I'm really happy with that choice and the film will shoot in a couple of months." Meanwhile, we also learn Jessica Brown Findlay (A Winter's Tale, "Downton Abbey") will star as Draven's fiancee, Shelly Webster. I've never read O'Barr's graphic novel, which served as the inspiration for 1994's The Crow starring Brandon Lee, but he tells the site this new adaptation will stick much closer to the source material. »

Jessica Brown Findlay Joins The Crow Remake As 'Shelly'

16 March 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

During a Q&A panel a the Lexington Comic and Toy Convention, The Crow creator James O’Barr not only confirmed that Jack Huston (Boardwalk Empire, American Hustle, Shrooms) would don the black and white face-paint as Eric Draven in Corin Hardy's remake, but that he'd be joined by Jessica Brown Findlay (A Winter's Tale, The Riot Club, Downton Abbey) as his doomed fiancée, Shelly Webster. This character was played by Sofia Shinas in the original film, and it's her brutal rape and murder that brings Draven back from the dead to exact his bloody revenge. O'Barr also revealed a few more interesting details: the bulk of the cast will be made up of of British actors; in the film the crow will actually speak to Eric as he does in the comics; and if there's a sequel, it will feature a female lead.

Jack Huston Is The Crow

16 March 2015 8:55 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

This weekend saw James O’Barr, the creator of The Crow, hold court at Lexington Comic and Toy Convention, pouring forth for something like 45 minutes worth of personal, sometimes passionate discussion. As far as these panels go, it was an unusually meaningful and candid one, with O’Barr talking pretty freely about what his creation means to him.

And I believe his enthusiasm for the upcoming new film of The Crow is easy to understand too. Talking about director Corin Hardy, the new approach and the cast, it was obvious that O’Barr’s endorsement wasn’t just motivated by the potential for big-bucks earning.

You can see the whole talk in the video below, but here are the headline points. First of all, O’Barr says that the new film will be very true to his original comics, offering something like a ‘page by page’ adaptation. This will go »
