The McShane-aissance is due to continue with a revival movie of Deadwood.

According to TVLine, original series broadcaster HBO is eyeing a Autumn 2018 production start date for a two-hour Deadwood revival movie, with a "stunning" script already in place.

The project has yet to receive the official green light, so don't get too excited Deadwood fans.

Especially since McShane has quite the busy schedule coming up...

After a brief appearance in the sixth season of Game of Thrones, McShane was cast opposite Ricky Whittle in Bryan Fuller-backed drama American Gods.

Based on the novel by Neil Gaiman, McShane starred as Mr Wednesday (or Odin, the God of War as we later found out) in the Starz series, which has already been commissioned for a second season.

The actor will also be filming roles for the new Hellboy reboot, as well as John Wicks 3 over the next year, so he has a lot on his plate.

And yet, we're hopeful.

Deadwood ran for three seasons from 2004 to 2006 on HBO.

The series was set in the late 1800s, and followed the adventures of characters in Deadwood, South Dakota; a town of deep corruption and crime.

Despite McShane's busy schedule, rumours of a revival were all but confirmed by actress Paula Malcomson, who played Trixie, earlier this year.

"I really think it will happen [this time]," she said.

"And I would never say that. I'm usually the most cynical about these things."

Fingers crossed, eh?
