Deadwood: The Movie — Official Teaser Trailer


added: Thu, Mar 21st '19

"This town is a sanctuary," says a grizzled Al Swearengen (Ian McShane). And so begins the first official teaser trailer for the long-rumored, long-awaited, long-in-the-works "Deadwood" movie, which is a feature-length continuation of the Emmy-winning HBO western from creator David Milch.

It's been more than a decade since the critically acclaimed series went off the air. But Milch has always stated that he wanted to develop a possible reunion movie. A couple of years back, there were rumors of a completed script. Original cast members expressed interest in returning. But it wasn't until recently that HBO confirmed the production was a go.

Set to premiere Friday, May 31st, "Deadwood: The Movie" takes place ten years after the events of the series finale. The year is 1889. South Dakota is on the verge of statehood, and brothel/saloon proprietor Al Swearengen (Ian McShane) and noble lawman Seth Bullock (Timothy Olyphant) make strange bedfellows as they strive to keep their anarchic Deadwood town from tearing itself apart.

Directed by acclaimed TV director/producer Daniel Minahan (Game of Thrones, The Assassination of Gianni Versace) and written by Milch, the HBO films event will also see the return of Molly Parker as Alma Ellsworth; Paula Malcomson as Trixie; John Hawkes as Sol Star; Robin Weigert as Calamity Jane Canary; Dayton Callie as Charlie Utter; Kim Dickens as Joanie Stubbs; Gerald McRaney as George Hearst, and many more.

Continuing the story begun in David Milch's critically acclaimed, Emmy-winning HBO series, the feature-length presentation is written by Milch, directed by Daniel Minahan and features original cast members from the series.

In the Deadwood film, the indelible characters of the series are reunited after ten years to celebrate South Dakota's statehood. Former rivalries are reignited, alliances are tested and old wounds are reopened, as all are left to navigate the inevitable changes that modernity and time have wrought.
