It’s official, people! After rumblings on the subject, it’s been confirmed that there will, in fact, be a Downton Abbey movie coming soon(ish) to a theater near you. O.G. Downton writer Julian Fellowes will be responsible for the script, and in what we find an impossibly sweet piece of inside info, Fellowes actually pre-wrote the script on the chance that a movie might come to fruition! And it came true!
