      “…her time has come and gone…”
      Wow! That’s such unnecessarily insulting. But it’s interesting to see you don’t confine your over-the-top comments to Y&R bashing while cheerleading GH.

    The only thing I really miss about the Dallas re-boot was Judith Light. She was really “bad” in the role of the crime-boss matriarchal Mom. Never forget the pat-down with the Mexican drug lord. So Good for her.

    Haven’t seen Empire, but I really miss Taraji on Person Of Interest. Wish they hadn’t killed her off. And on this show when your are killed off, that’s it!

Michael Edelstein, president at NBCUniversal International Studios, told the AP: “We are working on getting the script right and then we’ve got to figure out how to get the (cast) together. Because as you know, people go on and do other things. But we’re hopeful to make a movie sometime next year.”

Currently, the cast and writer Julian Fellowes have been on hand at the Downton Abbey exhibition which debuted in Singapore. However, some notable members of the company seemed surprised by the news including Laura Carmichael (Edith): “Well, tell my agent, because we’re still waiting to know. We’re hoping that will happen soon.”

Variety reports that an NBCUniversal spokesman confirmed the studio hopes to put the movie into production in 2018.
