No shock there, it became a pop culture phenom.
From Empire news....
Looking forward to it.
I miss Michael...
I think I can predict the story line already, let me guess...
Lord Grantham invests all the family money in the Argentines again only to loose it, and then a 'shock, lucky' business deal comes about and it's all swiftly dealt with in time for dinner.
Just like in real life.
Just add silver spoon for full coupon reimbursement.
I'm excited for it. I think Julian Fellowes will deliver something more film worthy than the tv series was storywise.
Hmm, I never thought there would be interest in a Downton Abbey movie on SHH, since we never had a thread for the TV series here.
Considering series 6 ends in early 1926, Robert might have invested a small fortune in American stock, then the Great Depression hit.
Anyway Fellowes has plenty projects ahead: this movie, a Fox series about the Gilded Age, a series about the 5 Rothschild sons, and a series about sports (football IIRC).
Errm, you did watch the original series didn't you, did you spot how many times this plot was used with the Argentines, that's where I'm heading with this joke.
IIRC there were 2 times the family fortune was nearly gone, first was 20 years before series 1 started (which prompted Robert to marry Cora to get her fortune to keep Downton). The second time were Robert investing in American railway stock, but then Matthew gave Lavinia's father's money to him.
You meant there was a time he invested in stock in Argentina? Or did you mean this is a plot popular in Argentine telenovela?
I was hoping they would get Michael Bay for this.
I mean the over-used plot line of Lord G investing in some far flung business venture that toppled, fell and required last minute financial intervention in order to keep the great 'Grantham' legacy alive and was made 'just in the nick of time' becomes for the purpose of my script 'gag' for the film version - said gag about investing in the Argentines.
Note to self - *If you have to explain it, it clearly isn't funny*
I wonder if they'll get Lily James back for this. Funny how she's probably had the biggest breakout outside the show at this point. Well, she and Dan Stevens, but we know Matthew ain't coming back, lol.
Oh I see.
He won't. I remember after series 3 Christmas Special Fellowes said in interviews that he even offered Stevens a guest role if he agreed, but Stevens wanted to leave for good (though at the time he only had a role in The Heiress with Jessica Chastain in the US).
He is, he just got sent the script though for The Guest 2, which this is secretly.
The crossover I never knew I needed.
Dockery did just get an Emmy nom, she aint doing to bad.
Rose Leslie and Lily James please.
Happy Hogan'll be...happy.
This should be good! Ill give it a go
Was my 1st though when I read the thread title! t:
Well that answers that.
