There were plenty of vapors when the series ended airing in the United States in 2016.
“When the television series drew to a close it was our dream to bring the millions of global fans a movie and now, after getting many stars aligned, we are shortly to go into production,” producer Gareth Neame said in a statement. “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.”
The movie’s plot has not been revealed, but the show’s cast has reportedly signed on for the film.
During the series’ run, “Downton Abbey” garnered three Golden Globes, 15 Emmys and 69 Emmy nominations, and a special BAFTA award.
