Go behind the scenes of HBO’s Deadwood: The Movie in new featurette
A new featurette for HBO‘s forthcoming Deadwood: The Movie has been released online, featuring the original cast talking about what it’s like to return to the acclaimed Western series after 13 years. Starring Ian McShane and Timothy Olyphant, you can check out the video below.
This all-new, original movie based on David Milch’s acclaimed, Emmy-winning HBO series of the same name sees the indelible characters of the show reunited after a decade to celebrate South Dakota’s statehood. Former rivalries are reignited, alliances are tested and old wounds reopened as all are left to navigate the inevitable changes that modernity and time have wrought.
The HBO drama ran from 2004-2006 and was a hit with fans, many of whom have since been asking for more. Once the cable network canceled the show after a mere three 12-episode seasons, Milch’s original plan was to make two Deadwood movies and create a proper ending for the rivalry between Sheriff Seth Bullock (Olyphant) and foul-mouthed pimp Al Swearengen (McShane). The cast for Deadwood also included the likes of Molly Parker, Jim Beaver, W. Earl Brown, Dayton Callie, Kim Dickens, Dora DuFran, Brad Dourif, Anna Gunn, John Hawkes, and Jeffrey Jones.
Deadwood: The Movie premieres on HBO May 31.
