According to recent reports, the Deadwood Movie script has now been completed and delivered to HBO. The beloved western series has become one of the most unresolved stories in television in recent times.
Deadwood ended with Season 3 but with a possibility of a season 4 continuing the series. Unfortunately those plans never came to fruition at HBO. And since the supposed final curtain was drawn on the series, a rumoured movie was constantly hinted.
Now though it seems that a script has been turned in, and this raises the possibilities for a Deadwood Movie to finally get made. The beloved western series starred Timothy Olyphant and Ian McShane as a sheriff and a bar owner/ pimp and revolved around a gold mining town filled with colourful characters.
Deadwood ran for three seasons from 2002 to 2006 before it was cancelled. Although it had garnered a following HBO opted out of continuing the series as it was rather expensive to produce. If a Deadwood Movie is eventually made, it would likely air on HBO sometime in 2018. Let’s hope all the cast members are ready for a reunion if the project is greenlit.
