Cult Hit 'Deadwood' HBO Series May Be Getting A Movie

Well apparently some dreams do come true, some damn dirty well spoken western dreams that is! It appears one of the greatest westerns of all time may be coming back. HBO's cult hit fowl mouthed, dirty cowboys and prostitutes filled Western Series Deadwood may be returning!

According to TV Line the programming president over at HBO recently gave series creator David Milch the green light to resurrect the series in a made for TV HBO film.

David 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.
— Michael Lombardo

Lombardo also states that Milch feels he "has something left unsaid" with Deadwood and even though he is currently working on another project, "the understanding is that when he is done with that he will turn his attention to writing the script" for the movie.

While all this sounds great, the fact still remains that Deadwood is a show that only lived for three seasons way back when on HBO. Also its been almost a decade since the show was cancelled back in 2006. Even if the movie can get moving ahead with a script, there's a slim chance in hell that, the full cast and crew could return. So hopefully if this happens, its done right and not half ass "as to insult the fans". We will just have to keep our fingers crossed.
