Cursing US western, the now defunct-Deadwood, is inching closer to a revival in the form on an HBO movie.
Previously hinted at in 2015, the project had gone quiet of late, but star Ian McShane has told TV Line, a “two-hour movie script has been delivered to HBO.
“If they don’t deliver [a finished product], blame them.”
McShane, who has a starring role in American Gods on Amazon, says he’s spoken to creator David Milch “about some of” the script. “I’ll be seeing him for lunch [soon],” he continued. “We’d all love to do it… It would be nice to see all of the old gang again.”
In January HBO programming exec Casey Bloys said, “I haven’t read [Milch]’s script yet.
“I know he’s working on it. But I have not seen anything yet.”
Milch is also working on a potential third season of True Detective with creator Nic Pizzolatto.
Deadwood ran for 3 seasons from 2004 to 2006.
