On August 12, 2015, it was reported that talks between HBO and Milch had resumed regarding a Deadwood film. In January 2016, HBO gave Milch the green-light to write a script for the film. On April 19, 2017, McShane announced that Milch had submitted a script for a two-hour Deadwood movie to HBO, saying "[A] two-hour movie script has been delivered to HBO. If they don't deliver [a finished product], blame them." On November 12, 2017, TVLine reported that the Deadwood movie was set to begin production in fall 2018, although HBO had not officially greenlit the project.
On July 25, 2018, HBO confirmed that a Deadwood movie had been greenlit and that Daniel Minahan, who directed four episodes in the series' original run, would direct the film, with production set to begin in October 2018. According to research requested by the producers, the film was to be set in 1889, approximately 10 years after the end of season 3. On August 21, 2018, W. Earl Brown confirmed that virtually everyone in the main cast would be returning; however, the characters played by Powers Boothe and Ralph Richeson, who have since died, would not be recast. "Everyone from the main cast who still draws air, with the exception of Silas Adams" (played by Titus Welliver) would return, Brown said. Production on the film would begin on October 5, 2018, according to Brown.
Brian Tallerico of RogerEbert.com gave it a highly positive review, rating it 4 out of 4 stars. He praised the direction by Daniel Minahan, writing, "Some of the best imagery in the entire arc of the show is right here in this movie." He also praised David Milch's writing, stating, "It feels like the product of a creator who fully understands that this is his last creation, but even he refuses to end on an easy note. There can be closure without sentimentality." He called it "a rich 110 minutes of filmmaking that rewards fans without pandering to them."
10 Movie Stars You May Not Realize Did Westerns, From Brad Pitt to Jake Gyllenhaal (Photos)It's been more than a half a century since gun-slinging, hi-de-ho Westerns dominated the box office, when names like John Wayne, Roy Rogers and Clint Eastwood headlined movies about the Old West. But nowadays, scenes of tumbleweeds crawling across deserted streets are few and far between. Westerns aren't yet totally extinct with the Coen Brothers' "Ballad of Buster Scuggs" and "The Sisters Brothers," starring John C. Reilly and Joaquin Phoenix.

Even though it never took home some of the top prizes, the show was no Emmys stranger during its original run. It garnered 28 nods over its three seasons, but competing in different categories might give this movie conclusion a better shot than it had when it was competing as a Drama Series.
Left ambiguous is the fate of Al Swearengen, who spends the entire movie in ill health, and the final act settling his affairs. The story ends with, first, Jewel (Geri Jewell) singing at his beside, and then with Trixie holding his hand while reciting the Lord's Prayer. Like Charlie Utter, the real Al Swearengen saw in the 20th century, so perhaps we can imagine that Deadwood's version lives to curse another day.
Deadwood: The MovieDirectorDan MinahanWriterDavid MilchCinematographerDavid KleinMusic byReinhold HeilJohnny KlimekDistributorHBORelease dateMay 31, 2019Runtime110 minutesDeadwood: The Movie is a film adaptation of the Deadwood TV series. On July 25, 2018, HBO confirmed that a Deadwood movie had been approved. Dan Minahan would direct the film. Production began in October 2018. The film was set in the year 1889.
Well, it's finally happening. On May 31, HBO will release a two-hour Deadwood movie set 10 years after the events of the third season. I've seen it and I'll tell you now: The movie doesn't tie up every single thread left dangling when the show ended. There's not enough runtime to pull off such a feat.
This is a much more focused story. Most of the main cast is still kicking around and pretty much everyone gets a moment. But with the movie now so close at hand, I thought it would be helpful to highlight some of the most important story threads informing this final chapter, for both newcomers and for longtime fans alike.
The camp's legacy is also critically important to the movie's continuing story. Remember: this is the place where "Wild" Bill Hickok (Keith Carradine) was gunned down in cold blood. Bill's old friend Charlie Utter (Dayton Callie) stuck around to settle down and honor the memory of the fallen gunslinger. Bill died in large part because he refused to get with the times, and now, so many years later, Charlie's feeling that same pressure.
We know going in that the movie picks up in 1889, as the town is preparing to formally join the state of South Dakota. You probably remember such a possibility coming up again and again throughout the series. Al Swearengen, McShane's character and a key figure in the community, fought hard during the series to stay involved in the process of future statehood.
Hearst demands blood and Al, who cares deeply for Trixie somewhere deep down, slits the throat of another of his flaxen-haired brothel workers. He stages the ruse hoping Hearst won't notice when he arrives to inspect the body -- and he doesn't. The legacy of their strained relationship -- and their last moments together in Season 3 especially -- lingers on throughout the years and plays a big role in the movie's story.
The Bullock-Garrett-Bullock triangle wasn't Deadwood's only love relationship. Late in the series, a connection bloomed between "Calamity" Jane Cannary (Robin Weigert) and Joanie Stubbs (Kim Dickens), the former madam at the Bella Union, a local casino/brothel and Gem Saloon competitor. It didn't go very far -- the series ended as it was just getting started -- but there's a lot of unresolved story to tackle there and both women returned for the movie.
Elsewhere, Bullock's pal Sol (John Hawkes) eventually took up with Trixie. Their coupling was always a fraught one, due in large part to Trixie's strong independent side, as well as her hesitance to settle into family life (a reluctance informed by her work history). By the time the series ended, theirs was another relationship left unfulfilled -- and again, both are back for the movie.
There are plenty of other major players in the Deadwood community that return for the movie and have their own part to play in the camp-turned-city's continuing story. But if you're looking for a general sense of the movie's focus, the above plotlines will put you on the right path.
Deadwood: The Movie is a 2019 HBO television Western movie, a continuation of the television series of the same name. The film is directed by Daniel Minahan and reunites the majority of the TV series cast, including Timothy Olyphant, Ian McShane, Molly Parker, Paula Malcomson, John Hawkes, and Gerald McRaney. The plot is set in 1889, ten years after the events of the TV series. Marshal Seth Bullock (Olyphant) investigates the murder of Deadwood resident Charlie Utter who refused to sell his land to Senator George Hearst (McRaney).
Between rewatching most of Deadwood, catching up with the new movie, and seeing all three John Wick installments, I just had an epic Ian McShane week. Is this a particularly exciting moment for you
Happily the movie provides ample succor for that viewer too. And if any doubts of that flit forth within the opening segments of the movie, which play out equally as a celebratory revival and to jog the memory, they dissipate entirely the moment resident lawman Seth Bullock (Timothy Olyphant), full of fire, sits down across the table from everyone's favorite incorrigible saloon owner Al Swearengen (Ian McShane).
Shot at the Melody Ranch Studios in Newhall, Calif., the sound editing is vital to the movie, which transforms ambient noise into storytelling information just as vital as dialogue: the swing of saloon doors, the clink of coins on a poker table, the high-pitched whinny of startled horses.
Colman: A lot. Before I started working on it, Ben restored the last six episodes of his effects work. I went through that and made careful notes and built a library of everything so that we could stay as true to the series as possible. The [movie] was a number a years later, so we changed some things. During the original series, the town was very much being built so there was a lot of hammering and sawing. A lot of it went from being wooden buildings to being stone buildings during that time period, between the show and the movie.
Freesh: I did all three seasons, and it definitely gave me a perspective on how to approach the mix for the movie. Before we started even mixing the series, we had a map of the town showing us where the different locations were in respect to each other, the Main Street with the Gem Saloon, the Chinese alley, the blacksmith area and so forth.
During the time when they were re-cutting the picture, I built the entire movie sound effects. Only then did I first have a meeting with Dan Minahan when we spotted the show, and then it was just a matter of conforming to his new cut and putting in a few details that he wanted there. A lot of that was experimenting with this idea or that idea. The normal way we work is, we have a conversation before I start cutting anything. This was a different approach. Because we were building off the series, it was not as if I was starting completely from scratch. I knew what the show needed to be. 59ce067264
