“I mean, one – I don’t know what’s going to happen tomorrow, and in the end it’ll be very much down to how the film is received, if they like it and if they enjoy it.
“And if we feel there is an appetite for more, then – maybe.”

Jim Carter has teased a movie sequel saying: “There’s plenty of room for more.”
The acclaimed actor, who plays Mr Carson in the beloved drama, told This Morning that the cast would love to return to the franchise.
He said: “The funny thing is Holly that people are already asking that and the movie isn’t even out yet. And we are thrilled people are asking.
