Deadwood fans, rejoice! The long-awaited reunion is almost upon us, with Deadline revealing that HBO has set a spring 2019 for the Deadwood movie, which will make it eligible for contention in the 2019 Primetime Emmy Awards.
Creator David Milch has scripted the movie, with Daniel Minahan (Game of Thrones) directing and Ian McShane (Al Swearengen), Timothy Olyphant (Seth Bullock), Molly Parker (Alma Ellsworth), Paula Malcomson (Trixie), John Hawkes (Sol Star), Anna Gunn (Martha Bullock), Dayton Callie (Charlie Utter), Brad Dourif (Doc Cochran), Robin Weigert (“Calamity” Jane Canary), William Sanderson (E.B. Farnum), Kim Dickens (Joanie Stubbs) and Gerald McRaney (George Hearst) all returning to the cast.
The movie will pick up ten years after the end of the TV series as the residents of Deadwood are reuniting 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.
