If you were hoping for more Downton movies, it sounds like you’re in luck!
Downton creator Julian Fellowes announced the disappointing news this month that he won’t be starting work on the script for quite some time.
However, on a more positive note, actor Hugh Bonneville has just revealed that he has long-term hopes for the future of Downton Abbey.
While promoting the Downton Abbey movie’s UK DVD release this week, Bonneville commented: “I can see a Star Trek franchise, I think this [first Downton film] is the beginning.”
The 56-year-old English actor, who plays Robert Crawley, predicted: “This is just a gentle opener to what’s going to be a huge franchise of five or six movies.”
We’re definitely on board with this!
The Downton Abbey movie is available on DVD on Amazon.
