The long-awaited Deadwood movie is finally filming after getting green-lighted by HBO back in 2016.
Deadline reports that 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), Kim Dickens (Joanie Stubbs) and Gerald McRaney (George Hearst) will all reprise their roles from the Golden Globe and Emmy-winning (not to mention famously foul-mouthed) Western series.
Actress Jade Pettyjon, who stars alongside Nicole Kidman in the upcoming crime thriller Destroyer, will join the 12 original cast members as Caroline. Details regarding the new character are under wraps.
Series creator David Milch wrote the script, which is set 10 years after the 36th episode ended the series in 2006. Daniel Minahan, who helmed episodes from all three Deadwood seasons as well as other HBO originals including Game of Thrones and True Blood, is set to direct.
HBO has further details on the plot:
The movie comes nearly 13 years after the drama concluded in 2006 and follows the 10-year reunion of the camp 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.
