A second film "Downton Abbey" in development
cinema Following the success of the film released last September at the cinema, the production of "Downton Abbey" board already on the continuation of the adventures of the Crawley family, revealed The Hollywood Reporter thanks to an exclusive interview of one of the producers of the film.
"We discuss it". It was with these words that Gareth Neame confirmed that a second film "Downton Abbey" was well under way. An announcement that is not surprising given that rumors about a possible sequel had already erupted even before the release of the first opus last September. Two months later, it is now done.
Faced with the excitement of adapting the hit series to the big screen after four years of absence on television, fans have responded. A loyalty that amounts to more than $ 180 million of revenue collected worldwide. "We had vaguely begun to think about [the sequel] before the film was released ... The reactions to the film, the promotional tour to the United States, and the approach of its release were so powerful We've been thinking about it since then, and it was obvious from the first weekend that it had to be taken very seriously, "Gareth Neame told The Hollywood Reporter. "We're talking about it, we're working on the story and when can we do it, but it's the same as the first time: we have to try to get everyone together again, and it was really difficult." he continued. It is precisely the question of distribution that poses the most problems as to the development of a possible continuation.
Maggie Smith back?
If a second film is strongly considered, the return of actors and actresses who compose the cast is not yet on the agenda and remains a problem to solve for the production. "The question will be, will everyone be available at the same time? Can we reach an agreement with them? That will be the issue," said the producer. As for Maggie Smith, despite the end of the film hinting that her character Violet Crawley was likely to die, everything is still possible for an unexpected return of the British actress, if we believe Gareth Neame. I would say is that one of the things that has been observed over the years in + Downton + is that we have had a lot of medical errors, "he said, thus letting hope of seeing the terrible countess of Grantham again on the big screen.
A true social phenomenon, the series "Downton Abbey" followed by his film have shown the interest of the audience for the British aristocracy, as evidenced by the success of another series on British royalty, "The Crown ". "I think + Downton + has paved the way for series like The Crown + but has also set the bar high for the value of high-end British content in the world."
