>Yesterday, we received confirmation of this Deadwood movie from a very reliable source: Michael Lombardo, the president of network programming at HBO.
>“It’s going to happen,” he said.
Google it because I can't post the link because of this god damn spam system
>Specifically, Lombardo confirmed to TVLine that creator “David [Milch] has our commitment that we are going to do it. He pitched what he thought generally the storyline would be — and knowing David, that could change. But it’s going to happen.”
>The timing of the movie, however, is still uncertain. Lombardo said that David Milch is currently working on another project, but that as soon as he wraps up work on it, his full attention will turn toward the film. There is, however, the matter of bringing back the cast. HBO is lucky in that regard: Almost the entire cast of Deadwood is made up of character actors, and those who have gone on to find bigger fame elsewhere — Timothy Olyphant, Anna Gunn, Ian McShane, Dayton Callie, and John Hawkes — are not currently tied to any major series projects now that Sons of Anarchy and Justified, infamous users of Deadwood alums, have gone off the air.
Can you faggots stop arguin about Star Wars for 5 minutes

>TVLine is reporting that HBO’s critically beloved Western swear reservoir, Deadwood, is being resurrected as a movie. The news—which comes after a couple of months of hints and innuendo from the network, plus hopeful wishing from series co-star Garret Dillahunt—has been confirmed by HBO’s president of programming, Michael Lombardo.
>mfw it's a filmed play done by the traveling theater troupe and none of the main cast is back
So who's coming back?
Al, Seth, Tolliver, Dan, and Johnny are obvious. Sol Star and Trixie might be back though I don't realy see any use for them anymore. Joanie and Calamity Jane could come back too but their story is pretty much done. Charlie Utter I'd love to see back.
>an unfinished series is finally getting the ending it deserves by the motivated writer behind all the other episodes
>STOP ENCOURAGING ADAPTATION BULLSHIT
Go take a long walk on a short pier.
This is going to be an original story, they're not remaking the show in a movie format they are completing a story they started telling 10+ years ago.
>but it has characters I know in there.
Doenst make it an unoriginal story..
>Europoors don't care for Deadwood. It's not their culture. They don't understand it.
As a Europoor, I sure as shit do care. A whole bunch of Deadwood characters are Europeans you dumb cocksucker.
nigga Brian Cox was fucking fantastic
>You're looking well Jack
>It's the learning fucking nothing, Al, that keeps me young
>The man I once was, Al, was not formidable, and I am but his shadow now. And yet I'd be put to use. A decoy, perhaps. A weight to drop on villains from above
>over acted shit
Kind of. The dialogue is heavily stylized and focuses mostly on the actor's performance/delivery. You have to watch it with subtitles otherwise it will just sound like Elizabethan nonsense. However, it's fucking amazing dialogue, with amazing actors, and an amazing set. Definitely worth watching and totally essential "good television".
I don't think any of the actors got huge since the TV show was made so I don't see why they wouldn't be back, obligations permitting. Unlike certain other movie.
I'd like to see Ms. Isringhausen back.
And Leon of course.
And Tom Nuttal.
And Con Stapleton.
And Andy Cramed.
And like somehow have Michael Hearny reprise his role by playing Steve the drunks twin or some shit.
>When Jane finds him crying behind the Saloon
really got to me...
Also he had great chemistry with ian mcshane...
>elsworth and the widow garret - who would have thought
>well... once in a while there's a true love-match
>both burst out laughing
Well, the show has to have been off the air for around ten years now. They'll have to advance the timeline to account for aging...
And the only people who can't come back are Merrick and Richardson... Could be alright, t bh f am. I'm hype.
Well they got it right up to the point where I Claudius takes over. The following period is even MORE interesting, particularly if you take the "lel Suetonius" account.
Fucking Livia, man.
Holy shit, best fucking news I've read all year!
Although I'm afraid it might not do good at all if it's a theatrical release, they better just broadcast it on HBO itself.
>Although I'm afraid it might not do good at all if it's a theatrical release, they better just broadcast it on HBO itself.
Yeah it'll definitely be broadcast for HBO. This isn't the fucking Entourage movie. People watched and enjoyed Deadwood from the comfort of their homes.
can Tim come back please? I've watched the series through maybe a dozen times. It's so fucking easy to watch and I doubt it cost much to make.
Is this for real? Can they pull of the original COCKSUCKHAS even though it's been 10 years?
Is it on HBOGO/NOW?
If so then there is hope. Other older HBO shows aren't available for streaming (Spawn, Dream On, Larry Sanders) because they don't own the sole distribution rights. So you can be damn sure they would never mount a revival, because they don't wanna split up any revenue/profit
b-but, trips confirm...
Seriously, though: Attia is just some bullshit, muh strong female character. Octavian is annoying as hell and stupidly and needlessly replaced with a worse actor in season 2.
Kevin McKidd can't act for shit, either. His family is wholly unlikeable, despicable actually. Niobe and the kids are possibly the worst characters I've ever had the displeasure of watching.
Titus was such a shitty "oh but he's got such a good heart" kind of character. Murdering the fiancee of Eirene and still getting together with her only an episode later.
And don't get me started on Egypt and Cleopatra. Some of the most cringe worthy television ever.
>You take your brother and your business and you get the fuck out of Deadwood, are we clear on that?
>Very well, Sheriff Bullock. But mark my words, you'll be hearing the name Wyatt Earp again soon enough sir. I say, my own story is just beginning!
Jesus Christ Milch
i hope it takes place during the show, maybe between seasons 1 and 2. then we still have the romance between bullock and garret, brad dourif is still alive and no fucking hurst
dunno about merrick. is jeffrey jones' career over?
>Joanie and Calamity Jane could come back too but their story is pretty much done.
What are you talking about? Calamity Jane's story has only just started, she has to become one of the most famous people in the wild west still
Anyone got Deadwood on Blu-ray yet? I heard the audio quality is fantastic. I always wanted the blu-ray quality of shows like Deadwood and The Wire but they took their sweet time to release them.
I am hyped for a film though. It's great news.
>yfw Ian McShane dies before they film the Deadwood movie
He didn't look so hot in John Wick, I'm worried.
>He didn't look so hot in John Wick
He's looked like that for the last 15 years at least. He spent like half the seventies and the entire eighties drinking a bottle of vodka for breakfast and smoking four packs a day.
You should see him in Lovejoy
He's a fucking magic antiques dealer
the guy who's written a bunch of specs but never sold anything, the guy who's always getting degrees but hasn't published anything, the holier than thou intellectual who's always on his laptop at the coffee shop but has never sold anything, etc.
kek, I caught him in Sitting Target with Oliver Reed once late at night, didn't recognize him at all at first. Pic related.
The actors are too old to pull that off now. The show's been off the air for ten years. Never mind backtracking to an even earlier time..
Also, yeah, I think Jeffrey Jones is finished.
I'm fucking psyched that it's coming back but don't you all think it's a little too late? It was left hanging in the air and now 10 years on they'll have to either pick up the old story with everyone looking much older or have a time skip which totally invalidates any attempts at keeping a somewhat accurate history of Deadwood.
I'm interested either way but can't help but think it will be difficult.
I'm not the most successful in life, but literally everything entertainment-wise I ever wished for is getting revived.
Twin Peaks revival - check
The Darkness reunion (happened already years ago but still it was on the list) - check
Guns N Roses reunion - check
Deadwood revival - FUCKING YES!!! CHECK!!!
I'm in some ways quite damn lucky.
Didn't Deadwood burn down quite a few years after the fund in which the show's last season was set? If so, then the story could easily skip ahead to that event and wrap up nicely.
He was fucking awesome
I think it was a flood and was planned to be incorporated as a major event iun the series.
By the timeline it should be well after the event, so the movie would be set after things have become re-settled after the changes from the rebuilding
I engender reading a while ago that mulch wanted to send it with Al dying jumping railroad cars fleeing deadwood or something.
>tfw Ian mcshane is in his 70s
Milch's curse had better not strike him down before the film is done
>You will never be this handsome
>You will never have an awesome moustache
>You will never have a sexy opium-addicted wife
>You will never sip your whiskey in the gem saloon
Merrick's too important to the story where it was headed for him to not come back.
Wasn't Gearoge Hearst supposed to start a rivaling newspaper in DW as he did IRL? How could they tell the story without pitting him against Merrick.
I hope they treat the actor as a professional and let him return. I mean: Polanski and Woody Allen are still working 100%. i don't see a problem.
Hearst is gone from the camp and I doubt he's coming back. He installed Tolliver as a puppet regime. Season 4 was supposed to be Al vs Tolliver Part 2. I think the movie will be mostly about that.
the show treats him like he deserves all the bad things that happens to him for being such a sucker, but when I watch I just feel bad for him cause everyone shits on him and takes everything. Even Alma strung him along.
>I'll have my people here start another one... to lie the other way
Fuck why is the dialogue so good
His fetish is being near sexually attractive grills without having anyone find out he has a tiny dick / is a sexual failure.
And when that obviously fucks up he kills the witnesses.
I feel really bad for him as well, poor dude.
Because he knew Sol liked her so he sent her over there as spy but when she developped feelings for the jew he let her go.
She also gave him a huge chunk of gold as way of buying herself free from him.
>Attia is just some bullshit, muh strong female character.
You are beyond retarded if you think this. She is a manipulative, slutty, superficial conniving bitch of an interfering nosy woman.. She's like every negative female trait rolled into one, all the power she has is due to her family and herself being a massive awful cunt. The exact opposite of the awful "muh strong female character" trope
>it's an Al gets a blowjob while talking to himself movie
This right on the heels of him apologizing for how shitty True Detective Season 2 was. HBO wants to start cashing in on any loose ends they have left from older shows since GoT only has two seasons left
Sopranos reboot imminent.
>by far the worst HBO show
Go watch girls and Game of thrones you faggot
>They don't understand it.
Australia was the American West 2.0
>Twin Peaks coming out
>now fucking Deadwood coming out
I have to keep postponing my suicide ffs
i love how al rolls his eyes when he see's he's arrived. i have friends who aren't like al, but like al, command respect from people. they are uncomfortable to be with me with other people because i undermined them by being so familiar. it's hard to explain. i've known the guy since we were kids so i'll say things and act a way that others don't. we have the most fun when we're doing stuff by ourselves.
jesse james is a hero for confederates. confederate soldier who later robbed yankee banks. also, his brother knifed 2 black soldiers who were talking shit at a bar. killed them both. the james's are hero's to a lot of people. but yeah, not national i guess.
