    Yesterday at the TCAs, HBO President Michael Lombardo was asked if there was any truth to the rumors and he confirmed to TV Line:

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

    So why is Milch intent on returning to Deadwood? Lombardo says that the creator and showrunner felt there was “something left unsaid.” Presumably, it wasn’t the word “cocksucker,” which is used so gratuitously that it becomes unintentionally comical.

    However, when we might actually get a Deadwood movie remains another matter. Milch is working on something else at the moment, but Lombardo says his understanding is that when Milch is done with that project, he’ll start work on the script for the Deadwood film.

    The other issue is casting. It’s hard to reunite a cast the size of Deadwood’s, but Lombardo is confident that this one will find time for a movie when it comes along. “The cast is unbelievably [tight],” says Lombardo. “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.”

    This is great news, and I hope it becomes a reality sooner rather than later. Now if we could just go back in time and stop HBO from canceling Carnivale so that whole story could play out, we’d be all set.

    That one guy who worked at the hotel was from the Newhart show. He was one of the Daryl brothers I think. Or he could have been Larry I don't remember
