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.
