Get everyone into the library for this announcement: A "Downton Abbey" movie is officially happening
Hide all the good china, because we’re having a decidedly un-ladylike reaction to the news that there’s definitely a Downton Abbey MOVIE coming our way.
Michael Edelstein, president of NBCUniversal International Studios, told the Associated Press during the opening of Downton Abbey: The Exhibition that he’s hoping to reunite the entire cast for an upcoming film.
This bit of amazing news was actually lost on some of the cast members, who were also on hand for the exhibition opening.
“Oh, well, you’ve got confirmation before us. We have no idea if that’s happening,” Sophie McShera, who played Daisy Mason, told the AP.
Laura Carmichael, who played Lady Edith Crawley, was equally startled.
Yup, looks like we’re all in agreement here! This needs to happen soon.
If you can’t wait that long to see the Crawleys together again, take comfort in knowing that the cast actually have their own mini-reunions.
“We bump into one another,” Phyllis Logan told People. “We did have a meetup recently. Some of us were all there — 30 of us. We had dinner.” What goes down at those dinner parties, though, is sadly top secret.
“Woah, we can’t say,” Logan quipped. “Off the Richter scale!”
Pardon us, while we go scheme to get ourselves an invite.
