deadwood movie production

Tell your god to ready for blood, because it’s finally happening. HBO has announced the Deadwood movie has officially begun production, and the original cast is returning. There have been talks of a Deadwood movie ever since the original show went off the air in 2006. As the years ticked on, it seemed less and less likely that we’d ever return to the foul-mouth world of David Milch‘s anti-Western. But now, it’s really happening.

american gods season 2 trailer

American Gods has gone through some problems behind-the-scenes, but a season 2 trailer has arrived intact. The show, based on the book by Neil Gaiman, follows ex-con Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle), who gets mixed up in a plot involving old and new gods wandering the earth. This is a curious trailer, because it spends most of its runtime explaining the plot from season one – almost as if Starz is essentially rebooting the show. Watch the American Gods season 2 trailer below.

John Wick TV show

There are two kinds of people in the world: those who think the John Wick movies are just action movies and those who think the John Wick movies are a feverish pinnacle of pop culture art that we will explore and study for years to come. I’ve gone on record as being part of the latter.

A new image from John Wick 3 (or John Wick 3: Parabellum, as it is apparently titled) has arrived online and it caters specifically to Wick nerds like me. There’s not a gun or a Keanu Reeves in sight. Just the promise of a meeting between two very dangerous men.

It must be divine providence, because American Gods is finally coming back to our TV screens. After the first season of the Starz fantasy series made a splash in 2017, the adaptation of Neil Gaiman‘s beloved novel experienced some behind-the-scenes conflicts that resulted in showrunners Bryan Fuller and Michael Green departing the series and Jesse Alexander taking the helm.

Now, a new American Gods season 2 teaser has arrived, marking the start of production for the ambitious fantasy series.

Timothy Olyphant has decided to be a jerk and throw some cold water on the Deadwood movie. HBO and creator David Milch have been going back and forth about the idea for years.

‘American Gods’ Clip: Meet Mr. Mr. Nancy

Mr. Nancy American Gods

It seems like most of us who watched American Gods this past Sunday are already finding ourselves engrossed in the ambitious Starz series. With the Neil Gaiman adaptation, co-creators Bryan Fuller and Michael Green took their time introducing Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle), Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane), and Bilquis (Yetide Badaki) in a character-driven and atmospheric pilot. They got fantastic introductions – giving us a clear sense of who they are, not so much what they want.

On the next episode of American Gods, the brewing war between the old gods and the new may get more attention, but there’s still a few key new players to introduce, such as Mr. Nancy/Anansi, played by Orlando Jones. Below, you can watch his introduction in a new American Gods clip.

deadwood movie

When Deadwood, one of the greatest television shows of all time, was cut down in its prime following a spectacular third season and a melancholy finale, fans took comfort in the knowledge that a series of TV movies were apparently on the way to tie up loose ends and give the series a proper send-off. Thanks to regime change at HBO, those sequel movies never happened. However, those who were enthralled by David Milch‘s dusty, profane, and poetic western series have kept hope alive – maybe it will come back. Someday.

Now, according to series star Ian McShane, the blueprint for TV movie follow-up has been finished. It’s all in the hands of HBO.
