Rumors of a Deadwood movie have been floating around for a while now, but HBO programming president Michael Lombardo finally confirmed that it's a go.
“David has our commitment that we are going to do it,” Lombardo said to TVLine. “He pitched what he thought generally the storyline would be — and knowing David, that could change. But it’s going to happen.”
In the wake of so many reboots, it's good to hear news of a revival that's going to take place via film, rather than a resurrection or a remake of a series — which can so often be disappointing.
And Lombardo is confident that the original cast will all be on board. “The cast is unbelievably [tight],” he said. “Some casts and creators form a bond that becomes relevant for the rest of their lives. This was a defining moment for a lot of them.”
Fingers crossed for an Enlightened movie next.
