HBO’s president Michael Lombardo has announced that TV drama Deadwood is to be made into a movie.
TV Line reports that Lombardo has given Deadwood creator David Milch the green light “David has our commitment that we are going to do it,” said Lombardo, at the TCA (Television Critics Association) press tour. “He pitched what he thought generally the storyline would be — and knowing David, that could change. But it’s going to happen.”
Lombardo also added that he had a sense that Milch “has left something unsaid” with Deadwood. “I’ve known him for a while and it feels like it’s something he’s not done talking about.”
Milch is currently working on another project, “But the understanding is that when he is done with that he will turn his attention to [writing the] script for the Deadwood film,” commented Lombardo.
