Is the Deadwood movie still happening? Recently, HBO boss Casey Bloys gave an update on the feature-length series follow-up, Deadline reports.
For years now, news of a Deadwood revival has circulated but progress has been slow. Last year, HBO programming president Michael Lombardo said creator David Milch was working on a script for a TV movie follow-up and McShane expressed interest in filming soon. The original series ran for three seasons before ending in 2006. The cast also included Timothy Olyphant, Molly Parker, Jim Beaver, and John Hawkes.
At the recent TCA summer press conference, Bloys announced that David Milch has delivered the Deadwood script. All HBO needs to do now is decide on a budget and get the cast back together:
He totally delivered on this. If we can do for the right budget it make sense. We’re taking to directors and we’re getting the cast together, which is not an easy task. Then we’re inclined to do it if we can get over those hurdles. … The script is terrific.”
What do you think? Are you a fan of Deadwood? Will you watch the revival movie?
