HBO Confirms ‘Deadwood’ Movie is Happening
The rumors are true! The highly awaited Deadwood movie has started development at HBO. The confirmation came from HBO’s programming networking president Michael Lombardo. Lombardo confirmed that he personally gave David Milch, the series creator, the green light to bring the story back to life.
“David has our commitment that we are going to do it,” Lombardo told TV Line. “He pitched what he thought generally the storyline would be — and knowing David, that could change. But it’s going to happen.” Actor Garret Dillahunt, who played Francis Woloctt on the show, first leaked the news on Twitter back in August.
