‘Deadwood’ Is Getting The Big Screen Treatment

imageWith Deadwood being one of HBO’s best shows to date, many fans have wondered if there will ever get the big screen treatment. If you don’t know what the show is about, it take places in 1870s Deadwood, South Dakota and follows the growth of the community and the characters within as they deal with internal conflicts and larger, external forces.

Yesterday at the TCAs, HBO President Michael Lombardo was asked if there was any truth to these rumors and he confirmed to TV Line:

“David has our commitment that we are going to do it,” says Lombardo. “He pitched what he thought generally the storyline would be — and knowing David, that could change. But it’s going to happen.”

But now the question is when will we see the film? Well with David Milch is working on something else at the moment, so it could be a while before we ever see anything start moving. Although Lombardo says once Milch is done with his current project, he’ll begin the script for Deadwood.
