    From Variety:

    The long-awaited “Downton Abbey” movie is happening, with the original main cast from the hit series returning and production starting this summer.

    The film will be a Carnival Films production, with Focus Features and Universal Pictures International distributing. Julian Fellowes, who created the period drama, has written the screenplay and will produce the feature.

    Gareth Neame, Carnival’s executive chairman, will also produce. He said: “When the television series drew to a close it was our dream to bring the millions of global fans a movie and now, after getting many stars aligned, we are shortly to go into production. Julian’s script charms, thrills and entertains and in Brian Percival’s hands we aim to deliver everything that one would hope for as ‘Downton’ comes to the big screen”.

    Brian Percival (“The Book Thief”), who directed the original series’ pilot, will direct the film.

    “Downton Abbey” became a global hit over its six-season run. It 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.

    “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.”

    Many of the cast of the series had spoken of their willingness to return for a big-screen “Downton” and the producers said Friday the original principal cast from the drama are on board the movie.

    The series garnered numerous awards including a trio of Golden Globe Awards, 15 Primetime Emmy Awards, a Special BAFTA award. With 69 nominations, it was the most nominated non-U.S. television show in the history of the Emmys.

    So Maggie Smith is probably going to get another Oscar nom. Cool. Has anyone won an Oscar for the same role they played on TV and won an Emmy for before?

    Tbh, Smith is the reason I’m actually most happy about this. I feared she had retired so it’s the cherry on the cake that she’ll be back.

    Has a film continuation of a tv show ever received an Oscar nomination in any category?

    I doubt it and I think that’s probably what’ll stop this from doing so either. Then again costumes and production design could be inevitable noms if they match previous quality…
