A Downton Abbey sequel could be on the cards. It's reported that another film is in the works following the movie's success.

The film, written by Julian Fellowes, has apparently brought in over £100 million at the box office in less than a month since it opened.

A source told The Sun:

“Downton’s popularity as a film has been phenomenal.

“It took £60million in America alone and has been a roaring success. Julian and the team are over the moon with how it played out.

"No one expected it would be this big."

The Sun reports that Fellowes is already coming up with ideas for a sequel.

The source explained: “The commercial viability of a second film is now a dead cert, so Julian has been told to start putting pen to paper on the follow-up.”

The historical period drama, set in the early 20th century, originally ran on ITV from 2010-2015.
