TVLine reports that HBO is looking at a Fall 2018 production start for the long-rumored Deadwood movie. The award-winning show was set in the late 1800s and took us through the comings and goings of the South Dakota town’s most corrupt characters (i.e. everyone). This summer, it was reported that series creator David Milch had turned in a script to the cable network, but no official green light was reported. And there still isn’t any official word from HBO. As TVLine says, “a rep for the cabler declined to comment on anything about the project, which has yet to receive a formal green light.” Also from TVLine:
Paula Malcomson, who played “Trixie the Whore” opposite Ian McShane’s F-bomb spewing Al Swearengen on the beloved series, recently told TVLine that the two-hour continuation is “a big Valentine” to the pair. She also expressed confidence that despite a long and rocky development period, “I really think it will happen [this time]. And I would never say that. I’m usually the most cynical about these things.”
Let’s all stay hopeful and worship the TV gods accordingly so that we see our foul-mouthed Deadwood fam again soon.
