Is the Downton Abbey film incoming?
The cast of Downton Abbey have been asked to keep their schedules clear for the possible filming of a movie sequel.
There have been murmurings about a potential film wrap-up ever since the series ended on Christmas Day 2015. However, solid evidence for a film has yet to materialise, despite nearly all the cast members and creator Julian Fellowes saying they’d be totally up for it.
We might finally have word that the Downton Abbey movie is going ahead however, as actor Jim Carter, who played Mr Carson in the series, revealed the cast have been asked to keep certain dates free in their diaries.
Speaking on Good Morning Britain, Carter said: “We’ve been asked to keep ourselves available for dates in the future. But nobody has seen a script.”
When asked for further information, Carter admitted he didn’t know much else, but there was “a willingness to do a film” amongst the cast and crew.
He added: “I am sure it will emerge.”
Please say this year is the year we finally revisit Downton!
