Is Deadwood Dead?

DeadwoodJust over 10 years ago—August 2006—Deadwood ended its run; pretty abruptly. A promised wrap-up movie or two never materialized.

But reports indicate that writer/creator David Milch is well on the way to completing a script for a movie.  All the main characters will be included, from Seth Bullock to Al Swearengen to Cy Tolliver to Calamity Jane.

What’s not clear:  when will the film be finished?  And will the lead actors—especially Timothy Olyphant (Bullock), Ian McShane (Swearengen) and Powers Boothe (Tolliver) sign up for the project?
