Deadwood movie starts production at HBO

HBO says production on the new film is underway led by original series stars Timothy Olyphant as Seth Bullock and Ian McShane as Al Swearengen, with series creator David Milch back as showrunner. (Fun fact: The main Deadwood sets are the same Wild West-themed studio sets used for HBO’s Westworld).

Here’s the first-ever description: “The indelible characters of the series are reunited after ten years 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.”

The Deadwood movie will air in 2019, along with the return of Game of Thrones and the return of Veep for final seasons, and the premiere of HBO’s first superhero drama, Watchmen.
