Deadwood Movie (HBO)

It's happening!!!!!

Against All Odds, the Deadwood Movie Is Really Going to Start Shooting This Fall

Quote
It’ll shoot this October, planning on a release in spring 2019, though that is not deadlocked, according to the president of HBO programming, Casey Bloys. Dan Minahan, who directed four episodes of the original series, will helm the film. “Let’s take the green light and celebrate that,” Bloys said, not adding further detail about the movie. Cross your fingers that nothing goes wrong as they prep for shooting, not, of course, that anything would ever delay this project.

I mentioned it in the best of TV thread earlier

I cant disagree with Harry more on this subject.

It will be incredible! I do not believe it will pick up right where it left off and will start some years later.

If it’s going to be as historically accurate as the series was, then a few years later probably won’t be as interesting.

I could listen to Al talking for 2 hours straight about nothing in particular and it would still be interesting to me.

I suppose they will need to cover Powers Booths character somehow. It’s sad that he passed.

I wonder if Robin Weight, she cleaned up real nice.

Probably busier than any other cast member since.

I disagree. It's never too late to go camping.

Assuming you mean too late because she's an adult now, why would it be weird to offer to take her camping? A grown woman and her uncle. Or if she's a teen now, still not weird. If she likes camping (which some people do even though I think it's horrid) and if you like camping, I think you need to keep your promise and offer to take her.

No opinion about the proposed movie.

I was happy to see Garret Dillahunt in a speaking role. He wasn’t listed int the cast.

That’s three Deadwood roles for him.

Oh hell no.  Maybe Milch had a great pay-off for that bunch in the aborted fourth season, but I hated their sub-plots both during my original watch and my recent re-watch of the series prior to the movie. Brian Cox gave a good performance, but every time we cut away to the troupe and their inter-squabbles I kept thinking "Who. The Fuck. Cares?!?!"

Enjoyed the movie. But man, it felt compressed and abridged. Interesting that Milch gave Al Calamity Jane's real ending. I think that never-to-be-seen fourth season would have depicted her drinking herself to death, the show seemed to be headed in that direction. Of course, we never got to see the burning of Deadwood that the show was also apparently building and hinting towards, just a slight allusion with Bullock burning the telephone poles.

And  maybe it's only because I just finished re-watching the series a few days ago....but everyone looked so old. It's only been fourteen years. That's not that long, is it? (don't answer that, lol) Timothy Olyphant looked so much older than he did on Justified and that was only about five years ago. A lot of that had to be character make-up right? (It's too bad we never got to see A Teddy Roosevelt/ Seth Bullock meeting on the show, as they were friends in real life)

As someone who watched the whole series for the first time (minus an aborted attempt a year or two ago) to just finish before the movie came out, I have to say that it felt like all parties involved picked it up like they'd never left.  If felt perfect for a Deadwood set 10 years later and all the actors slipped right back in to perfection.  I agree it felt abbreviated, but I think that's mostly because I really wanted another season to explore all this, but as a self-contained story I think it worked just fine and was altogether satisfying.  On a side note, did anyone catch what happened to Sy?  Sounded like he died or just left but I wasn't sure.

I really enjoyed the show but not yet watched the movie. I want to talk my wife into watching the show first. She's been a little hesitant as westerns are not her go to jam, but think she would enjoy it if she gives it a shot. Glad to see mostly positive reviews so far.

I was completely wrong to be apprehensive, that was absolutely brilliant from start to finish!
