Ian McShane, who plays Al Swearengen on the original series, has confirmed that the script "has been delivered to HBO", AceShowbiz reports.

The "Game of Thrones" actor tells TVLine that series creator David Milch's "two-hour movie script has been delivered to HBO". Since its cancellation, there has been constant speculation as to whether the series would ever return and according to Al Swearengen himself, there has recently been some movement on the show's long-gestating revival.

McShane also stated that he has spoken to Milch about the script and that he would be seeing him for lunch at some point in the near future. If a film does get made, McShane sounds pretty interested in going back to the Old West: "We'd all love to do it. It would be nice to see all of the old gang again", McShane continued.

Ian's confirmation marks a significant progress to the revival since it was confirmed that the project had been commissioned on the network.

Now we just need to wait and see what HBO does with the script, and which characters have been chosen to return.

"I know he's working on it".

Deadwood originally ran on HBO for three 12 episode seasons in 2004 - 2006 and was nominated for 28 Emmys during its run, winning 8 of them. "But I have not seen anything yet", Bloys said regarding Milch's script. McShane is now starring as Mr. Wednesday in the upcoming Starz series American Gods, based on the novel by Neil Gaiman.
