HBO is getting closer and closer to making the long-awaited Deadwood film. The possibility of this film has been discussed for years; really ever since the show was canceled in 2006. We recently heard that the cable network loved the script and that the film would start shooting in 2018. Well 2018 is here and in a recent report from The Playlist, the movie will start shooting this fall if everything comes together. One of the main things that needs to happen is getting all of the actors from the series back! HBO Programming President Casey Bloys offered the following update:
“David Milch is doing a rewrite that he and the producers were talking about. If they can get all the actors together, which they’re trying to do — and everybody wants to do it — if they can get everybody back together, we’re looking at fall 2018 to shoot something. But a lot of things have to fall into place for that to happen. But I’m optimistic.”
Hopefully everything falls into place! The fans really want to see this movie happen! We are getting closer and closer to finally seeing a proper ending to the story that David Milch started to tell all those years ago. The story focused on the rivalry between Sheriff Seth Bullock (Timothy Olyphant) and the villainous pimp Al Swearengen (Ian McShane).
If you haven't watched the series yet, you should start now!
