It's been over a decade, but waiting for more deadwood is almost over.
The trailer for Deadwood: The movie posted today on HBO's YouTube channel, and although he does not give us much insight into the plot of the flick, he promises a sequel that's as grim, dirty and profane as the original series. You can check it out here, but be advised (and if you're a fan, you already know what's coming next): It's very, very NSFW.
deadwood HBO ran three seasons and 36 episodes between 2004 and 2006 and is still considered by many to be one of the biggest TV series of all time. Each episode was a day in the life of the mining town of South Dakota, mostly marked by shocking acts of violence and a lot of extremely colorful language. The series did not end because of a declining interest of the fans, but because the Cabler and series creator David Milch could not reach an agreement on how it should go on; HBO suggested a shortened fourth season with six episodes that passed on milk. Already in 2007 it was talked about to continue the story with two films – but since the series had a gigantic ensemble, it was extremely difficult to bring the band together again, so to speak.
Eventually, the stars have agreed to return to Deadwood, not a moment too early: Milk has recently committed itself to diagnosing Alzheimer's disease, and the creator admitted he had a hard time writing the script for the new movie , "As I understand best what is minimal, I have a worsening of the organization of my brain," he said in a conversation vulture, "And it's progressive, and in a way daunting More There are some possibilities – in every way that comes to my mind. "But milk reacted well to the therapy and, as his wife Rita says, lost none of his spelling deadwood an indelible piece of pop culture. "I compare it to a musician who can still play and has access to the memory of how he can do that and still be able to use his talent," she said. "The brain is David's most trained muscle."
It's just another obstacle on the way to more deadwoodAnd with the new movie, Milk will finally have the opportunity to bring its epic story to a close. The vast majority of the original cast somehow managed to assemble for production, including: Timothy Olyphant (Snowden) as Sheriff Seth Bullock, Gerald McRaney (Santa Clarita diet) as a corrupt businessman George Hearst, Molly Parker (1922) as Alma Ellsworth, Paula Malcolmson (grave stone) as Trixie, Anna Gunn (breaking Bad) as sheriff's wife Martha Bullock, Dayton Callie (Fear the walking death) as Charlie Utter, Brad Dourif (the longtime voice of Chucky in the child's play Series) as Doc Cochran, Kim Dickens (house of cards) as Joanie Stubbs, Robin Weigert (Big little lies) as "Calamity" Jane Canary, William Sanderson (True blood) as E.B. Farnum and of course Ian McShane as the ruthless Gem Saloon owner Al Swearingen.
On the director's chair for the film is TV veterinarian Daniel Minahan, who starred in episodes of Real Blood, Ray Donovan, House of Cards, American Crime Story, and game of Thrones; we are confident that he will confess. The film will (appropriately) take place ten years after the events of the series finale. However, the machinations of this decade have been speculated as the plot of the strip is kept firmly under wraps. However, we have this official summary: "In the deadwood Film, the indelible characters of the series are reunited after ten years to celebrate the statehood of South Dakota. Former rivalries are reawakened, alliances are tested and old wounds are reopened as they all thwart the inevitable changes that modernity and time have brought about. "
That … does not tell us much, but that's intentional. Come on, you've always been waiting for more deadwood – You do not want to spoil the grand finale for you any more than we do. Fortunately, we do not have to wait long to figure out how Milk summarizes its epic West story: Deadwood: The movie Premiere on HBO on May 31st.
