Language (of course!)

Deadwood: The Movie, which returns to South Dakota 10 years after the series concluded, will screen on FOX Showcase in early June.

The 2 hour film will screen on Monday June 3, just two days after its US broadcast.

Continuing the story begun in David Milch’s critically acclaimed, Emmy-winning HBO series, the feature-length presentation is written by Milch, directed by Daniel Minahan and features original cast members from the series. In the Deadwood film, 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. During its three-season, 36-episode run on from 2004 to 2006, the Deadwood series was nominated for 28 Primetime Emmy Awards, winning eight, including Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series (Walter Hill), and also received a Golden Globe Award for Best Performer by an Actor in a Television Series: Drama (Ian McShane). Stars Ian McShane (Al Swearengen), Timothy Olyphant (Seth Bullock), Molly Parker (Alma Ellsworth), Paula Malcomson (Trixie), John Hawkes (Sol Star), Anna Gunn (Martha Bullock), Dayton Callie (Charlie Utter), Brad Dourif (Doc Cochran), Robin Weigert (“Calamity” Jane Canary), William Sanderson (E.B. Farnum), and Kim Dickens (Joanie Stubbs).

Monday June 3 at 8.30pm on FOX Showcase.
