The Deadwood movie is going ahead


HBO has given the go ahead for the Deadwood movie. The announcement was made by HBO programming president Casey Bloys at the TCA summer press tour today.

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

The HBO drama ran from 2004-2006. Series creator David Milch has written the script for the film, which will tie up loose ends left by the series, which was cancelled after three seasons.

The show picked up 28 Emmy Award nominations during its run, ultimately winning eight.

It took place in the 1870s in Deadwood, S.D., and charted the community’s growth from a camp to a town. The large ensemble cast included actors Ian McShane, Timothy Olyphant, Molly Parker, and John Hawkes.

The plot lines included historical truths as well as substantial fictional elements. Milch used actual diaries and newspapers from 1870s Deadwood residents as reference points for characters, events, and the look and feel of the show. Some of the characters are fully fictional, although they may have been based on actual persons.

Bloys also said the movie is currently scheduled to begin shooting in October for a spring 2019 air date, but added that the date is not “set in stone.”
