HBO programming president Michael Lombardo confirmed Thursday that Deadwood is coming back for a movie.
"David has our commitment that we are going to do it," Lombardo told TVLine. "He pitched what he thought generally the story line would be — and knowing David, that could change. But it's going to happen."
The Western cult favorite aired from 2004 to 2006 and was canceled before it got a satisfying conclusion. There have been talks of a movie for years, and credible rumors had been growing in recent months, and now it's confirmed: Ian McShane will swear again as Al Swearengen.
