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.How soon might this picture reach TV screens? TVLine quotes Lombardo as saying that “Milch has another project he’s currently working on, ‘But the understanding is that when he is done with that he will turn his attention to [writing the] script for the Deadwood film.’” We hope that time comes very soon.
