Yeah, cocksuckers, you heard that right. HBO’s beautifully foul-mouthed but short-lived Western is getting the resurrection treatment.
HBO programming president Michael Lombardo confirmed to TVLine that he personally gave series creator David Milch the green light to resurrect the acclaimed yet painfully short-lived Western.
“David has our commitment that we are going to do it,” says Lombardo. “He pitched what he thought generally the storyline would be — and knowing David, that could change. But it’s going to happen.”
Details on when the movie might happen are still motherfucking sketchy, but it should be the next thing Milch works on. That son of a bitch. There is also the goddamn problem of the cast members possibly not being able to coordinate their now significantly busier schedules. When the series started, fucking morons that we are, we didn’t realize how much we should love Timothy Olyphant, Molly Parker, John Hawkes, Paula Malcomson, Garret Dillahunt, and Curse King Ian McShane. Jesus fucking Christ that’s a talented goddamn cast! But Lombardo is confident they’ll make it work in part based on the fact that the cast loves the show as much as we do.
“The cast is unbelievably [tight],” he adds. “Some casts and creators form a bond that becomes relevant for the rest of their lives. This was a defining moment for a lot of them.”
Of course I’ve taken liberties with the language in this post, and you might want to share the news in a more “Safe For Work” format. If you’d like to share this news with someone you think would enjoy the show but wouldn’t care for my level of swearing, please feel free to cut and paste the blurb below:
“A show called Deadwood exists and is being made into a move. Please, please don’t watch it. It will crush your delicate sensibilities. Also immediately defriend the person who sent you this news item. They have absolutely no idea about what kind of things you would like.”
