HBO is officially loading their six-shooter for a Deadwood movie

Howdy pardners, we are pleased to share with you that HBO has officially greenlit a DEADWOOD movie at their network. HBO chief Casey Bloys announced today that, eleven years after the sun went down on the show's third season, a follow-up film will start filming this October.

“All of these people worked hard to get this together,” Bloys said. “It’s been a logistics nightmare getting all the cast members’ schedules together but we are there. It is greenlit.” Bloys also stated that while the date is not "set in stone", the project is aiming down its sights at a spring 2019 release.

Last year, fans of the Western drama starring Timothy Olyphant, Ian McShane, Molly Parker, Brad Dourif, and many more, received some encouraging words from Bloys, who said that he'd received one hell of a good film script for DEADWOOD series creator David Milch.

“I wanted a script that would stand on its own … I’m happy to say that David totally delivered on that. It’s a terrific script,” Bloys remarked back then.

This is major news for DEADWOOD fans, who've been waiting for the official word on the making of a film ever since the show's 2006 finale. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Emmy Award-winning program, DEADWOOD is set in the late 1800s, and revolves around the characters of Deadwood, South Dakota; a town of deep corruption and crime.

Let us know if you're excited to return to the rough 'n tough badlands of DEADWOOD in the comments section below.
