'Deadwood: The Movie' trailer sees Ian McShane and Timothy Olyphant reprise their roles in reboot of the popular HBO show
Set in a town called Deadwood, located in South Dakota in the 1870s, the central plot revolves around the gold mining camp that was set up in the town in 1876
'Deadwood: The Movie' is the reboot of a popular HBO show of the same name which aired from 2004 to 2006. It was set in a town called Deadwood, located in South Dakota in the 1870s. The central plot revolves around the gold mining camp that was set up in the town in 1876. The central characters were the residents of the town and non-locals who moved to the town to make it big.
The series went off the air after the third season and was in the 2013 TV Guide list of shows that were cancelled too soon. Now, the series has been rebooted, but as a film and sees Ian McShane return as the owner of a local salon and brothel, Al Swearengen.
Timothy Olyphant will also reprise the role of Seth Bullock and Molly Parker will be seen playing the role of Alma Ellsworth in the film version. The trailer dropped on Thursday and has got fans of the show excited to see their favorite characters on screen again.
The film is set 10 years after the events that occurred in season 3 of the show and the trailer features gunslingers, cowboys, and women in a brothel who are employed by Al Swearengen. There is Al himself, as he converses with Seth Bullock, one of the many who came to the town in search of gold, and asks him, "You ever think, Bullock, of not going straight at a thing?" After a montage of gunshots, men fighting, and going for each other's throats, Bullock responds, "No!"
The third season ended with Al killing Jen to placate George Hearst (Gerald McRaney), which worked in their favor as Hearst does leave Deadwood after seeing the death of who he assumes is "the w***e who shot him." It was, of course, Trixie (Paula Malcomson). Bullock loses the county elections for the post of sheriff against Hearst and so watches as Al tries to salvage the situation. In the end, Al is seen scrubbing Jen's blood off of the floor.
The film is slated to release May 31, and is directed by Daniel Minahan. 'Deadwood: The Movie' is written by David Milch who also created the original TV series.
