EXCLUSIVE: Ian McShane Tells Cinematical HBO Has Scrapped Those 'Deadwood' Movies

Yeah, I'm not happy about it either. Earlier today, I got a call from Ian McShane to talk about his new family fantasy movie, The Dark is Rising, and I asked him the big question Deadwood fans have been wanting to know for a while now -- was HBO just blowing smoke with its promise to wrap up the series with a couple of made-for-TV movies? Well, the answer is yes, McShane revealed to us. "I just got a call on Friday from ... a dear friend of mine, who told me that they're packing up the ranch," McShane said. "They're dismantling the ranch and taking the stuff out. That ship is gonna sail. Bonsoir, Deadwood." He went on to say that even if the movies were happening, there would be the strike to consider, and on top of that, he's committed to a filming schedule that would prevent him from doing them anytime before late next year anyway.

I told McShane that as a fan, I felt completely cheated by this move on HBO's part. "You feel cheated? Imagine how I feel!" he replied. "We all do. We all do. It was one of those one-off jobs that you do which has got an extraordinary creative brain behind it, and it kept getting better, and the actors were great. It was a fabulous place to be and work. It was a workshop cum theater cum film. It was an extraordinary time. But everything has to come to an end, babe." So, there you have it.

cocksuckers, all.

I tried to like it, I really did. But, the anachronistic language just ruined it for me. These 19th Century characters sounded too much like they just time-dropped from 2005. For example, "fuck" did not become commonly used until the 1920s, but makes up a major component of dialog in Deadwood. I suspect the same for cocksucker.

I have no objection to the profanity--it certainly fit well in The Sopranos. But, in Deadwood, the language just did not fit the time period.

Kind of looks like all the impressions in the story seem to have been done for the amusement of Sean Connery, and he seemed to enjoy the heck out of it.

I collect civil war letters. "Fuck" was most definitely a popular word in the 1860s.

''But "fuck" wasn't actually a swear-word back then. It was indecent, of course, but people only used it for the sexual act itself. ''

Deadwood was a great work of drama, not a history lesson in a non-fiction book.

I can see why they used the words (fuck and cocksucker) they did. 

It was a crude and vulgar time and place, and limiting themselves to period appropriate vulgar language wouldn't have had nearly the same impact on a modern audience.

My favorite example of a frontier letter was a piece of hate mail that Abe Lincoln liked to show his friends.

God damn would have been extraordinarily shocking in the 1860s, far more than fuck or shit.  Not so much, now.

Wikipedia mentions this, and I'd agree that the show would be less enjoyable with all characters "sounding like Yosemite Sam"...  :roll:
