Rejoice, co*%suckers, because the long-mooted Deadwood movie is on at HBO.
The series, starring Ian McShane, Timothy Olyphant, Molly Parker and John Hawkes, and set around the development of Deadwood, South Dakota in the 1870s, only lasted three seasons but has gained a devoted cult following.
Now the news that fans have been hoping for has arrived: HBO will bring the story to a conclusion in a brand-new film.
“All of these people worked hard to get this together,” said HBO Programming President, Casey Bloys, today. “It’s been a logistics nightmare getting all the cast members’ schedules together but we are there. It is greenlit.”
Further details are thin on the ground right now, but you can be sure I’ll bring you news as it develops.
