‘Downton Abbey’ Cast Members Reunite for ‘The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society’ 9/11/2017 Telly Visions - Movies by Laurel Ann Nattress
While fans of Downton Abbey patiently await updates from creator/writer Julian Fellowes on his plans for a theatrical movie of the mega-hit Masterpiece historical drama, a new movie featuring four of its cast members has been filming in England and The Channel Islands. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, adapted from the international best-selling novel by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows, is somewhat of a mini-reunion for Downton cast members. The World War II period drama will star Lily James as free-spirited journalist Juliet Ashton and feature Jessica Brown Findlay as Elizabeth McKenna, Matthew Goode as Sidney Stark, and Penelope Wilton as Amelia Maugery.
Dir. Mike Newell (Four Weddings and a Funeral and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire’)
