DOWNTON ABBEY Film Gets 2019 Release Date
"Since the series ended, fans of 'Downton' have long been waiting for the Crawley family's next chapter," said Focus chairman Peter Kujawski. "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 next September."
Production on the film began in late August. The series' original cast - including Michelle Dockery, Elizabeth McGovern, Maggie Smith, and Hugh Bonneville - would return for the movie. Also joining the cast are Imelda Staunton, Geraldine James, Simon Jones, David Haig, Tuppence Middleton, Kate Phillips, and Stephen Campbell Moore.
The film's screenplay was written by Julian Fellowes, who created the series. The television series followed the lives of the Crawley family and the servants who worked for them at the turn of the 20th century in an Edwardian English country home.
