Looks like those Deadwood movies aren't happening after all

Deadwood fans have been treated like yo-yos for the past several months. Some days we hear that the movies are a go and some days we hear that the movies are a no.

Take this as one of the "no" days.

And it comes from a pretty good source, Ian McShane himself. He's interviewed by Ryan Stewart over at our sister blog Cinematical, where he reveals that a good friend of his called him last week and told him that the movies weren't going to happen and that the production company is tearing down the sets. He also says that even if the movies were going to be made in the next year, he wouldn't be able to do them because he's too busy with his film schedule.

This is why God made DVDs. Now we'll just have to be happy with the seasons we had, and if we want the further adventures of Swearingen and gang we'll have to just do our own private puppet shows or maybe fan fiction.* David Milch has already moved on to another show for HBO, about cops.

* Just kidding. Please don't write any fan fiction.

I agree with Rogphi... I'm not shocked, but disappointed never the less.

Tell me again why I have my HBO subscription? I don't think Big Love and Entourage is enough anymore...

I can't say I am shocked but is very disappointing. This was one of the best shows of the past few years. Too bad they couldn't find a way to finish it properly, but Hey its HBO they never finish anything properly!

Sad news indeed. I only recently discovered Deadwood and would rank it in my 20 favorite shows of all time. Too bad it ended with a whimper instead of a bang... and that Milch and Co. couldn't find a way to make the movies happen.
