Dead­wood still alive

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - What's On - - CINEMA -

Dead­wood is one of those bril­liant TV shows that didn’t last an aw­fully long time and since the western se­ries was can­celled in 2006, ru­mours about a film have tum­bled around.

But now news has come out that one is gear­ing up to en­ter pro­duc­tion. Work won’t start un­til next au­tumn, but what’s an­other year to peo­ple who have been wait­ing 11 years? Dead­wood ran on HBO, and that net­work’s pres­i­dent of pro­gram­ming, Casey Bloys, said this about the project: “The one thing I was con­cerned about is, I wanted a script that would stand on its own. That if you were a Dead­wood fan, it would make you happy and if you had never watched Dead­wood, you would still en­joy it... I think it’s a ter­rific script.”

Now, HBO hasn’t of­fi­cially given the project the green-light yet, so lots could still hap­pen. But maybe they’re just liv­ing the gim­mick. As Dead­wood’s Al Swearen­gen said: “An­nounc­ing your plans is a good way to hear God laugh.”
