The long awaited ‘Deadwood’ movie is finally going into production later this year with hopes that the film will debut on HBO in 2019…
‘Deadwood’ is finally back from the grave.
The much beloved Western series that ran from 2004 to 2006 on HBO is being revived as a film after years of speculation that the show would return for a mini-series or a movie. Now it’s official with HBO president of programming Casey Bloys confirming on Wednesday that production on the ‘Deadwood’ movie will start in October.
‘Deadwood’ creator David Milch penned the script for the upcoming film and Daniel Minahan, who helmed four episodes of the original series, is attached to return to direct the movie.
Bloys added that he hopes that the ‘Deadwood’ movie will debut on HBO in spring 2019.
The timeline for filming is still up in the air right now as the entire cast is expected to return so shooting schedules will have to be configured for what remains an all-star line up that appeared on ‘Deadwood’.
The series was headlined by Timothy Olyphant and Ian McShane — who are both series regulars on current TV series — as well as Molly Parker, Kim Dickens, John Hawkes, Robin Weigert, W. Earl Brown, Dayton Callie, Paula Malcomson and Brad Dourif.
‘Deadwood’ picked up eight Emmys over three seasons on HBO and now the show will finally return for a movie to wrap up the series when the film debuts next year.
