However, in a new interview with TVLine, HBO programming president Michael Lombardo confirmed that series creator David Milch has approached him with an idea and that a Deadwood film is on the way.

“David has our commitment that we are going to do it,” Lombardo said. “He pitched what he thought generally the storyline would be — and knowing David, that could change. But it’s going to happen.”

Although we’ll have to wait — Lobardo explained that Milch is currently overseeing another project. “The understanding is that when he is done with that, he will turn his attention to [writing the] script for the Deadwood film.”

During its run Deadwood featured a cast that included Timothy Olyphant, Molly Parker, W. Earl Brown, John Hawkes and Brad Dourif. Lombardo was hopeful that all of these names will return. “I’m going to leave that in David’s hands. He’s confident he will be able to,” he said. “The cast is unbelievably [tight]. Some casts and creators form a bond that becomes relevant for the rest of their lives. This was a defining moment for a lot of them.”
