Hugh Bonneville, aka the Earl of Grantham, recently promised that a “cheery” film like Downton Abbey 2 is just what the nation needs right now.
He said: “We’d love to do it and there is a great intent, but a little thing called Coronavirus keeps getting in the way.
“It would be super to think that sometime this year the cameras would roll because a Downton-type cheery movie would be very welcome in cinemas when they reopen eventually.
“There is a script, but not all the ducks are in a row yet – they are certainly not in the pond!”
His Downton co-star Jim Parsons has also teased what he has seen in the script so far.
