Deadwood Movie Has a 'Terrific Script,' Says HBO Boss
At long last, there is an update on HBO’s long in development planned Deadwood movie. HBO president of HBO programming Casey Bloys spoke at the 2017 summer TV Critics’ Association about how he’s read David Milch’s script and is still looking to make the TV film happen.
“I read the script. The one thing I was concerned about is I wanted a script that would stand on its own,” said Bloys. “I’m happy to say that David totally delivered on that. I think it’s a terrific script.”
It’s not full steam ahead on the Deadwood movie yet, though. Bloys says the biggest hurdles yet to be cleared are finding “a budget that makes sense for us,” a director and reuniting the cast. If they’re able to do those things, “we’re inclined to do it. But we have to get over those hurdles. But the good news is the script was terrific,” said Bloys.
