‘Downton’ star joins Ian McKellen and Helen Mirren in new thriller – watch the trailer!

Downton Abbey star Jim Carter has more than one big movie coming out this autumn!

Following the release of the long-awaited Downton movie next month, the Mr Carson actor will be back in cinemas later this year in The Good Liar.

Helen Mirren (The Queen) and Ian McKellen (Lord of the Rings) lead the cast of the new thriller from Mr Holmes writer Jeffrey Hatcher, based on Nicholas Searle’s novel.

The official synopsis reads: “Career con artist Roy Courtnay (McKellen) can hardly believe his luck when he meets well-to-do widow Betty McLeish (Mirren) online. As Betty opens her home and life to him, Roy is surprised to find himself caring about her, turning what should be a cut-and-dry swindle into the most treacherous tightrope walk of his life.”

Watch the trailer:

The Good Liar will be released in the UK on Friday 8th November and in US cinemas on Friday 15th November.

Helen Mirren’s new period drama series Catherine the Great is also set to arrive before the end of 2019.
