Downton Abbey will get a special send off in movie theaters sooner rather than later!
The show's creator Julian Fellowes has written the film's screenplay, and he is also going to co-produce as well.
Crowning glory for Netflix with Emmy nomination success
Other nominees in the category include Jason Bateman (" Ozark "), Ed Harris (" Westworld ") and Matthew Rhys (" The Americans "). The fantasy dragons-and-swords saga, which already has 38 Emmys under its belt, is not expected back on screens until next year.
Numerous cast of the series had spoken of their willingness to return for a big-screen "Downton" and the producers said Friday the original principal cast from the drama are on board the movie. The series, which dealt with the dueling worlds of the aristocratic Crawley family in their lavish British estate and their humble downstairs employees, became a worldwide sensation, and launched the careers of Legion's Dan Stevens and Cinderella's Lily James. Brian Percival, who helmed the series' pilot episode, will also direct the film. "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 principal cast - including Hugh Bonneville, Michelle Dockery, Dame Maggie Smith and the rest - have reportedly all signed on to reprise their roles in the upcoming feature. The ITV/PBS Masterpiece series ended with Anna and Mr. Bates having a baby, Dockery's Mary expecting her second child, Edith marrying, and so much more. But life goes on, and so there are more stories to tell about the Crawley family and their servants.
We're finally getting that "Downton Abbey" movie that fans have long wanted. "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".
The official Twitter account for the series broke the news over social media to "cordially invite" fans to see the film, which will be screened in cinemas.
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.
