HBO’s terrifically, gritty and sweary, western drama Deadwood is finally getting a movie and now it seems a dozen key characters will be returning for the big screen production.
Series creator David Milch has written a script and Daniel Minahan has been named as director and production of the Deadwood movie is now officially underway and today’s announcement that a dozen original cast members will be reprising their roles has sent fans of the series into meltdown.
The twelve returning cast members are as follows:
Ian McShane (Al Swearengen)
Timothy Olyphant (Seth Bullock)
Molly Parker (Alma Ellsworth)
Paula Malcomson (Trixie)
John Hawkes (Sol Star)
Anna Gunn (Martha Bullock)
Dayton Callie (Charlie Utter)
Brad Dourif (Doc Cochran)
Robin Weigert (“Calamity” Jane Canary)
William Sanderson (E.B. Farnum)
Kim Dickens (Joanie Stubbs)
Gerald McRaney (George Hearst)
The movie will be set 10 years after the series finale and these characters and more will all be reunited to celebrate South Dakota’s statehood where former rivalries are reignited, as they all face the changes modernity and time have wrought.
No word yet if this will be a TV feature or will be theatrically released but for now a script, director and cast is in place and Deadwood the movie is scheduled for completion next year.
I have the distinct feeling that the forthcoming fifth series of Game Of Thrones will be soaked in blood.
Here’s the latest trailer for the award winning series.
From Beavis & Butthead and King Of The Hill to Office Space and Idiocracy we’ve been long-time fans of the work of writer/director Mike Judge. Now the talented man is ready to unleash his latest project on audiences through HBO, a comedy series about six computer programmers living together and trying to make it big in Silicon Valley.
Here it is, a quick look at the up and coming season three of the critically acclaimed fantasy series Game Of Thrones.
It gives the viewer an appreciation of the amount of work and logistics which go into each season of this remarkable series. We also get to have a sneak peak at some of the new cast members and locations.
It will apparently gallop back onto our screens here in the UK on April 2nd on Sky Atlantic and personally we can’t wait.
Judging from the short trailer above, entitled: ‘You Win Or You Die‘, it appears that Joffrey is now in full-on bastard mode. This second series will be based on George R.R. Martin’s second novel in his ‘Song of Ice and Fire‘ odyssey, ‘A Clash of Kings‘.
In our humble opinion he was one of the greatest boxers who ever lived and if like us you’ve watched the amazing HBO documentary Thrilla In Manila then you might be of the same opinion that Frazier was indeed a better man than Muhammad Ali, a man who suffered an inexcusable betrayal. RIP Champ.
WARNING: If you haven’t watched the first series of HBO’s amazing fantasy saga Game Of Thrones then this funny little short might spoil some major plot points for you.
With that said this video from College Humour isn’t just a stroke of comedy genius, it’s also an inadvertent reminder of the fun we used to have playing 16 bit games back in the day. Everything these days is just so bleak and violent. Anyway we can’t wait for series 2, we hope there’s tons more incest, decapitations and mutilated corpses.
Thanks Slammer for the tip…just the tip!
