Downton film rumour squashed DOWNTON Abbey star Hugh Bonneville has squashed rumours that the hit period drama is to be made into a film.
The actor (inset) played Lord Grantham in the series, which came to an end in 2015 after a five-year run. There have since been whispers that a big-screen adaptation is in the making.
pers But, speaking at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show press opening yesterday, the star said: "There is no script I have read, or any deal in place, for a Downton movie, so I think it is hugely unlikely. But of course I would love to do it, I think everybody would."
