'Downton Abbey' Movie News: Actor Gives Update On Potential Film, Is There A Script? [VIDEO]
It seems that a Downton Abbey movie is more likely to happen.
After the series ended earlier this year, there have been non-stop rumors that a film based on the British drama would happen sometime in the next year or two. And now, in Thursday's report from The Independent, Jim Carter who played Carson, gave the impression that a script is in development.
He also pointed out that if a film does happen, he and the other cast members would be thrilled to be a part of it.
"I think we'd all love it," Carter said. "I think the script is being worked on. If it happens, that'd be great. Everybody wants a film and I'm sure we'd all be happy to do it."
Meanwhile, some of the other actors from the show dished on the idea of a film taking place. In a report from Entertainment Weekly, Elizabeth McGovern who played Cora Crawley, said that a lot of thought would have to be put into a movie.
"If you were to reconceive it as a movie, you wouldn't just want to put an episode up on a movie screen," McGovern said. "You'd have to really have a great idea. I don't know if there's any other idea that suits it being a movie. There's no real reason for me."
Hugh Bonneville, who's known as Robert Crawley from the series, said that the film could definitely happen, but it'll probably take a while since creator Julian Fellowes is busy with other projects at the moment.
"I'm sure if the script was right and we could all get together, I could see circumstances in which it would happen," Bonneville said. "I don't know when Julian's going to have time to write the damn thing."
