‘Deadwood’ is returning but this time in movie form. The critically acclaimed series turned movie will be making its premiere on the HBO Network on May 31st. Following on from the previously launched teaser trailer has been released.
Set 12 years after the show ended, Ian McShane, Timothy Olyphant, Molly Parker and John Hawkes all reprise their roles.
The movie sees the residents of Deadwood have reunited to celebrate South Dakota’s statehood in 1889, but time has taken a toll on the characters, especially Al Swearengen (McShane). He butts heads with Sheriff Seth Bullock (Olyphant) in the trailer, which is full of Wild West shootings, hangings and tension.
Daniel Minahan will direct the film after having first-hand experience of helming several episodes of the original series. Creator David Milch has returned to write the made for TV film.
