‘Deadwood’ Returns To HBO With A Full Length Movie

If you’re a Deadwood fan, you can probably recite all of Al Swearengen’s curse-laden lines. For years, fans have been banging on HBO’s door about a possible continuation of the series. Fortunately, the cable network has finally given in to their demands.

No Law Can Make It Respectable

During the TCA summer press tour, HBO revealed plans to release a Deadwood movie. The film is slated to start shooting in October.

“All of these people worked hard to get this together. It’s been a logistics nightmare getting all the cast members’ schedules together, but we are there. It is greenlit,” HBO programming president Casey Bloys stated during a panel.

Placed On The Backburner

This isn’t the first time a Deadwood film was in the works. After the show’s third season, two films were ordered in place of season four. Over the next decade, the films were brought up in random discussions, but nothing transpired.

Before Bloys’ announcement, actress Robin Weigert, who played Calamity Jane, let it slip that a movie was happening. “It’s safe enough to say [the film] is happening this fall. There’s a set being built and tax incentives to get it done. A lot of [actors] have signed on. There’s a 90% chance it’ll finally happen,” she told Los Angeles Times.

Fortune Comes With A Price

Released back in 2004, Deadwood became one of HBO’s most critically acclaimed programs. The series gained eight Emmy wins, including two for Outstanding Makeup for a Series. Ian McShane, who portrayed Swearengen, earned a Golden Globe for Best Actor–Television Series Drama in 2005. The series’ cancellation was based on financial reasons.

 We can definitely expect all the greatness of the series because the film’s script was penned by show creator, David Milch. The Deadwood film is slated to be released in the spring of 2019.
