The Deadwood movie is expected to start shooting this fall.
That’s straight from HBO’s programming president Casey Bloys, who answered a question about the long-long-long awaited follow-up and conclusion to the network’s prematurely canceled 2004 Western series.
“I can finally-finally confirm we are greenlit on Deadwood movie … it will shoot in October,” Bloys said.
Bloys announced the news at the Television Critics Association’s press tour in Beverly Hills on Wednesday. The executive noted it was a “logistical nightmare” to get the ensemble cast — led by Timothy Olyphant and Ian McShane — back together.
“We’ve been asked the Deadwood question for 11 consecutive years,” joked HBO corporate communications chief Quentin Schaffer.
HBO also gave an update on Game of Thrones final season.
