TGIF to all my fellow Timothy Olyphant fans. We made it through another week! I always feel an accomplishment on Friday.

It is a brand new year! The first of the year is always a busy time. It is not my favorite time. Time for taxes and trying to live up to those New Year’s resolutions. Yikes! Not fun.
Michael Lombardo, president of HBO, told TVLine that HBO has given show creator, David Milch, the green light to make a big screen version of Deadwood. Milch pitched a storyline to HBO and the project was born.
Milch is currently working on another project but plans to write the Deadwood script when his project is complete.
The biggest problem facing the production it seems will be assembling the cast again. It involves lots of actors with busy schedules.
While Deadwood is not my favorite Olyphant project, I am still excited for the big screen prospect. Hopefully it will provide fans of the show some long overdue closure.
Time will tell if the project will come into fruition after years of rumors about a Deadwood movie. Sounds like the commitment is there, we will cross our fingers that everyone can come together and make it a reality.
Well that is my first big New Year’s story. Let’s hope there are more Olyphant projects to come!

TV Line has reported that HBO is in negotiations with David Milch to make the long awaited Deadwood movie. The movie would wrap up the storylines left hanging when the series ended.
Timothy Olyphant played Sheriff Seth Bullock during the show’s three year run. Milch abruptly ended the show when he could not come to terms with HBO.

Fans have been rallying for a movie to provide closure since the series ended. Looks like that wish may be granted.
It is not known if the movie would air on HBO or be a big screen venture like Sex and the City and Entourage. I am sure fans are rooting for a big screen version.
