The historical drama about a wealthy family and their servants in England during the early 20th century ran for six seasons in the UK and US. It attracted devoted fans on both sides of the pond. Even though the plot of the movie has yet been released, the cast of the show has signed on.
“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.”
