Official Photos Released for HBO's Long-Awaited DEADWOOD Movie
Here’s concrete proof that HBO is really making that Deadwood movie! EW has released a couple photos from David Milch‘s western, and they feature the return of Ian McShane as the vicious Al Swearengen, owner of the Gem saloon, along with Timothy Olyphant as Seth Bullock, who is now a U.S. Marshall.
It’s kinda crazy that after 12 years this movie is really happening because I honestly never really thought it would. But here we are, and I couldn’t be more excited! I was a big fan of the show and I’m happy to see that it’s finally going to get a proper conclusion.
Here’s the synopsis for the film that was previously released:
The indelible characters of the series are reunited after 10 years to celebrate South Dakota’s statehood. Former rivalries are reignited, alliances are tested and old wounds are reopened, as all are left to navigate the inevitable changes that modernity and time have wrought.
McShane and Olyphant will be joined by Molly Parker (Alma Ellsworth), Paula Malcomson (Trixie), John Hawkes (Sol Star), Anna Gunn (Martha Bullock), Dayton Callie (Charlie Utter), Brad Dourif (Doc Cochran), Robin Weigert (“Calamity” Jane Canary), William Sanderson (E.B. Farnum), Kim Dickens (Joanie Stubbs) and Gerald McRaney (George Hearst).
The film also includes a new cast member, Jade Pettyjohn, who will play a character named Caroline, but we don’t have any details on the character’s role in the story.
Game of Thrones helmer Daniel Minahan will direct the film from a script written by creator David Milch.
