Series creator David Milch’s “two-hour movie script has been delivered to HBO,” Ian McShane reveals to entertainment website TVLine, before adding with a laugh, “If they don’t deliver [a finished product], blame them.”
McShane, who has a starring role in Starz’ American Gods, says he’s spoken to Milch “about some of” the script. He continues. “We’d all love to do it… It would be nice to see all of the old gang again.”
This marks a significant step forward from where things stood earlier this year. “I haven’t read [Milch]’s script yet,” HBO’s top programming exec Casey Bloys told TVLine back in January at the Television Critics Association winter press tour. “I know he’s working on it. But I have not seen anything yet.” It was a year earlier that Bloys’ predecessor Michael Lombardo first confirmed that a "Deadwood" reunion project was commissioned.
The last episode of the HBO series aired in 2006.
