A 'Downton Abbey' movie is reportedly in the works.

Writer Julian Fellowes - who created the hit TV series - is reuniting with producers Carnival Films to work on the much-discussed movie, with filming set to begin in September.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Film bosses have requested the services of crew members and accountants to work on the picture.

"A budget has been set and now it's a case of getting everything in place to start shooting. It would take something big to stop the project from happening now."

The period drama TV series was a huge success in the UK and overseas, while it also turned the likes of Hugh Bonneville and Jessica Brown Findlay into household names.

It has almost been almost a year since we have seen our favorite family from Yorkshire. Almost immediately after the television show finale aired people were asking for a full-length Downton Abbey movie .

EVER since Downton Abbey came to an end in 2015, fans of the show have been hopeful for a follow up movie , but it seems there could be something else in the works .

Julian, 67, started writing a script for a 'Downton Abbey' movie well in advance of the film being given the green light, saying he was ready to press ahead with the project as soon as he received the go-ahead.

He previously admitted: "I don't want to be caught out if the producers suddenly say yes and then it's all go."

Meanwhile, actress Laura Carmichael revealed in April that she was still waiting for a script for the 'Downton Abbey' film.

Despite widespread speculation about the movie, Laura - who starred as Lady Edith Crawley in the series - insisted she had not seen any tangible proof of the film being made.

Speaking to BANG Showbiz, Laura said: "My family are always telling me what they read but I don't know any more than that.

"As we have said before, if there is a script for us then we will be delighted. We just have to wait and see."
