Timothy Olyphant on Deadwood movie: “There’s no f*king way it will ever happen"
On Watch What Happens Live, Olyphant expressed even more skepticism that a Deadwood movie will actually happen. “I know they’re making an effort,” Olyphant said. “They are making an effort, and I’m hopeful." But while he expressed support for David Milch, he still doesn't think HBO could get the entire cast back together. “That being said, there’s no f*cking way it’s ever going to happen.” Asked to respond to Olyphant's statement, HBO told EW: “We are continuing to try and bring this group of actors together. With varying schedules, it is a challenge, but we are committed to finding a way and making the film.”

HBO boss: Game of Thrones won’t return until 2019 because “these things take time,” and showrunners are “perfectionists”
“Here’s what I’ll tell you: They take the time they need to do the show at its highest level of quality,” HBO programming chief Casey Bloys tells EW. “As the show has gone on, it’s gotten bigger — big battle scenes, big special effects. These things take time. Here’s the one thing I can assure you: Dan and Dave were not sitting around on a beach waiting to go back to work. They’re perfectionists and this is the soonest it can come back at a level of quality that they are comfortable with.”
- Game of Thrones prequels won’t premiere until at least 2020
- Bloys says David Benioff and D.B. Weiss won’t proceed with Confederate for a year to a year and a half
- HBO hopes to start filming the long-awaited Deadwood movie in fall 2018
