Deadwood Reunion Movie 'Is Going to Happen,' Promises HBO President

Reports of a Deadwood comeback have not been greatly exaggerated. Quite the opposite, in fact.

HBO programming president Michael Lombardo confirmed to TVLine that
he personally gave series creator David Milch the green light to
resurrect the acclaimed yet painfully short-lived Western.

“David has our commitment that we are going to do it,” says Lombardo.
“He pitched what he thought generally the storyline would be — and
knowing David, that could change. But it’s going to happen.”

The exec says that the revival — which would take the form of a movie
versus a limited series — was born out of a “palpable” sense he had
that Milch “has something left unsaid” with regard to Deadwood, adding “I’ve known him for a while and it feels like it’s something he’s not done talking about.”

Timing wise, Lombardo says Milch has another project he’s currently
working on, “But the understanding is that when he is done with that he
will turn his attention to [writing the] script for the Deadwood film.”

And what about the potential scheduling nightmare that awaits trying
to corral the show’s busy, in-demand cast? “I’m going to leave that in
David’s hands,” Lombardo says with a smile. “He’s confident he will be
able to.

“The cast is unbelievably [tight],” he adds. “Some casts and creators
form a bond that becomes relevant for the rest of their lives. This was
a defining moment for a lot of them.”

    Olyphant is going to win an award for this one. I'm calling it now.

    Yeah, I am hesitant, because it has to be a scheduling nightmare getting all these folks together again. But if they can pull it off then I will be there with bells on. As much as I loved the last episode (I didn't think it ended poorly, just not as final as it could have, based on Deadwood's real life history) I'd love to go back to this world and say "hello" as well as a fond farewell to all those magnificent fucking cocksuckers.

    If you do a cast on Deadwood, the spoiler section needs to call those who haven't seen the show before "hoopleheads"

    This has shades of that arrested development season 4 - EVENTUALLY but years, years later then people thought. 

    I trust this will be a bit more satisfying though. I need to do a re-watch, becuase I never watched the last episode! I've kind of being "saving" it because as long as I never watched it, there was still a tiny bit more a Deadwood I could watch some day, but now maybe were getting a movie!

  • I'm not sure how this would be received today, but I'm pretty sure it would work.  Al berating E.B. will never get old.

    Yeah, it's already been years later than people thought. I just hope it truly is an eventuality.

    There's already a podcast that does that, called Hooplecast.
