DEADWOOD MOVIE GETS GO AHEAD

HOLLYWOOD – It’s the news Deadwood fans have been waiting for: Deadwood: the Motion Picture is going to happen.

The cult HBO Western Deadwood about the inhabitants of the eponymous  frontier town first aired in 2004 and set new standards for swearing on television. Cancelled due to a combination that people only watched it on DVD and the expenses of building a town, news of a movie has been tantalizingly spare, and many had given up hope. 

Timothy Olyphant (star of Justified) said no way; David Milch, the show’s creator, said nix nix, Ian McShane who played the unquotable Al Swearengen said you’ve got to f*cking be kidding me. 

All in fact, except the Studio Exec who yesterday managed to get Richard Plepler the current CEO of HBO in a headlock. It was an intimate function and security backed off  imagining that I was performing the Heimlich maneuver. ‘What’s this about?’ gasped Richard. ‘What the…?’ I told him I was a desperate man. I had to know what happened.

You can’t just leave me hanging like that. Years! Nothing resolved. It’d be like Schubert not finishing a symphony or something.   

There was a lot of spluttering, some sobbing and lots of pleading, but finally I let him go. 

‘You mad bastard,’ he said. He was quite literally spitting blood. ‘I’ll see what I can do.’

Deadwood: The Motion Picture will begin filming once I send Richard the location of his favorite dog.

FIRST LOOK AT IAN MCSHANE IN GAME OF THRONES

HOLLYWOOD – An exclusive first look at Ian McShane’s new character in Game of Thrones arrived at the Studio Exec bungalow via raven.

Ian McShane is perfect casting for The Game of Thrones and ever since news of his casting fans have been eager to get a glimpse of what the former Deadwood star would be up to. Fortunately for all, the Studio Exec has EXCLUSIVE access to the star and is able to confirm some facts about his upcoming role in the HBO hit fantasy show.

So Ian, who’s this character?

He is called Lovejoy and he is a collector of rare antiquities and objects of worth. A kind of wheeler dealer but also a loveable rogue. He has a small Bravos swordsman friend called Tinker who follows him around and does his bidding.

That sounds great.

It is great. I love Game of Thrones. I can swear as much as I f*cking like and I get killed off in the second episode so basically I only had to work two weeks.

Er… Isn’t that a spoiler?

Okay. I mean I DON’T get killed in the second episode. No, not at all.

There’s been a lot of speculation about the role you play already and how it ties in to the other story lines. Can you say something about that?

Okay. But I’ll try and avoid spoilers. So, basically, the old girl who died at the wedding, she’s back and she’s zombie like and everything, but she’s also a bit of quality so my character looks after her in the woods and kind of falls for her, until he’s … NOT killed.

Game of Thrones will be broadcast in 2016.
