‘Downton Abbey’ Movie Confirmed, Original Cast Set To Return

Maggie Smith in series six of Downton Abbey

The original principal cast, including Maggie Smith, Michelle Dockery, and Hugh Bonneville, are all set to reprise their roles.

The outlet notes that "not every recurring character" will appear in the Downton Abbey film - which is understandable considering that the series' main, recurring character, and guest cast lists rival the size of Game of Thrones'. Julian Fellowes, who created the period drama, has written the screenplay and will produce the feature. The long-rumored movie has been greenlit and is heading into production.

The Downton Abbey movie is a Carnival Films production, with Focus Features and Universal Pictures International distributing.

However, since fans have been waiting for a movie since the series ended in 2015, they afford to wait a little bit longer. The movie will be directed by Brian Percival, who previously directed the series' pilot. "We're thrilled to join this incredible group of filmmakers, actors and craftspeople, led by Julian Fellowes and Gareth Neame, in bringing back the world of "Downton" to the big screen". "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".

The 'Downton Abbey' cast are set to reunite for a film, it has been announced. It won three Golden Globes and 15 Emmys on top of 69 total nominations over the years. That made it the most nominated non-US television show in Emmy history. 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.

It's still unclear exactly in what year the film will take place, but the TV series began depicting events immediately after the sinking of the Titanic in 1912 in its first season and finished in 1925 as the middle class began to rise in England and cracks began to form in the aristocracy.
