Downton Abbey is heading for the Big Screen with an official announcement from NBC Universal International Studios.
We are working on getting the script right and then weve got to figure out how to get the [cast] together because, as you know, people go on and do other things. But were hopeful to make a movie sometime next year.
Michael Edelstein, President of NBCU International Studios spoke with the Associated Press and revealed that production will begin 2018. Downton Abbey portrays the lives of the aristocratic Crawley family in England and their servants against the backdrop of historical events in the early 20th century and was a major hit on both sides of the Atlantic.
