It's real. It's finally happening.
For 14 years, there's been talk and rumours of a 'Deadwood' movie to wrap up the seminal HBO series. David Milch talked about making it, pretty much all of the cast said they were up for it, and now... finally, it's happening.
Timothy Olyphant and Ian McShane are set to return as Seth Bullock and Al Swearengen respectively, with the story set a decade after the series ended.
As the official synopsis explains, "(the) indelible characters of the series are reunited after ten years to celebrate South Dakota’s statehood. Former rivalries are reignited, alliances are tested and old wounds are reopened, as all are left to navigate the inevitable changes that modernity and time have wrought."
Pretty much all of the entire core cast are returning, with the only exception being Powers Boothe - who played Cy Tolliver. Sadly, Boothe passed away in 2017 at the age of 68 from pancreatic cancer.
The movie, which will be shown on HBO and presumably Sky Atlantic over here, will be directed by Daniel Minahan. Best known for his work on 'Game of Thrones' and 'House of Cards', Minahan had some of his earliest directing credits on 'Deadwood'.
No release date has been confirmed as of yet, but it's understood that the movie will air some time in 2019. For now, we'll leave you with this compilation of every usage of the word 'c*cksucker' across all 3 seasons.
