When asked about the status of the Deadwood move, HBO president of programming Casey Bloys refrained from confirming the film has been greenlit, but did say that “David [Milch] is writing the script.” The network has not yet read the script, but Bloys said, “I imagine it will be very good. I feel good about it.”
Bloys is HBO’s new president, having replaced Michael Lombardo who said earlier this year that a Deadwood film was finally going to happen. Early discussions about a movie based on the popular drama series took place at HBO last year.
