The Deadwood movie is officially in production, and here's who's back

Updated:


By Keisha Hatchett,

Even after confirming that the anticipated Deadwood is actually, for real happening, we still nursed some doubts that the movie would truly come to fruition -- at least any time soon. However, 12 years after the beloved HBO western ended, production has officially begun on the film, the network announced Monday.

Set in the late 1800s, Deadwood revolves around a motley group of characters in a small South Dakota town that's rife with crime and corruption. The series ran for three seasons on HBO before wrapping up in 2006, and earned 28 Emmy nominations (but zero wins).

The film reunites these familiar faces a decade after the events of the series finale to celebrate South Dakota's newly-acquired statehood. Rivalries will be reignited and alliances will be tested as the town's residents are forced to deal with the quickly changing times.

The Deadwood film will see a bunch of your favorites return including Ian McShane as Al Swearengen, Timothy Olyphant as Seth Bullock, Molly Parker as Alma Ellsworth, Paula Malcomson as Trixie, John Hawkes as Sol Star, Anna Gunn as Martha Bullock, Dayton Callie as Charlie Utter, Brad Dourif as Doc Cochran, Robin Weigert as "Calamity" Jane Canary, William Sanderson as E.B. Farnum, Kim Dickens as Joanie Stubbs and Gerald McRaney as George Hearst. Plus, Jade Pettyjohn joins the cast as a new character, Caroline.

The Deadwood film will be executive-produced by David Milc, who also created the series.
