Deadwood actor W Earl Brown has actually read the movie script and couldn't be happier with it.
Last month, Ian McShane confirmed that creator David Milch had delivered a two-hour Deadwood movie script to HBO, joking that it's now their fault if the long-awaited revival isn't filmed.
And now Al Swearengen's right hand man Dan Dority has been busy hyping up Milch's work on Twitter.
"Much like the Scottish Leviathan and the Himalayan Ape Man, its existence has been long rumoured. I can now lay the Legend to rest and swear to its being a real thing," Brown teased in a series of posts.

I've read the DEADWOOD film script.- W. Earl Brown (@WEarlBrown) May 2, 2017
"The hour and half it took me to read was f**king thrilling and f**king heartbreaking. I was sitting on an airplane, cheering and crying as I took a journey that only David Milch could create. I've read the DEADWOOD film script. It's stunning."
Despite his commitments to American Gods, McShane has recently expressed his eagerness to return to Deadwood: "We'd all love to do it. It would be nice to see all of the old gang again."
The show originally aired on HBO for only three seasons between 2004 and 2006, winning eight Primetime Emmy Awards during its original run and frequently ranking as one of the greatest TV dramas of all time.
All we can do now is wait and pray that HBO decides to actually make Milch's "stunning" script into a movie.
