The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society is proving to be something of a mini Downton Abbey reunion. Both Matthew Goode, who played Henry Talbot in the fifth and sixth seasons of the Masterpiece PBS show, and Jessica Brown Findlay, who played Lady Sybil Branson née Crawley in the first three seasons, have reportedly joined the cast.

Lily James, who portrayed Lady Rose MacClare for the three finals seasons, had previously been announced as the lead.

Inspired by the New York Times bestseller of the same name, the film is set on Guernsey Island following its German occupation during World War II and will center around James's character, a "free-spirited" writer named Juliet Ashton.

Other actors involved in the project include Glen Powell (Hidden Figures), Michiel Huisman (Game of Thrones), Penelope Wilton (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel), and Tom Courtenay (45 Years).

According to Deadline, filming will commence in the UK this spring. Release dates have yet to be shared publicly, but it is likely to debut in 2018.
