In an interview with MTV, Ian McShane suggested that the critically-acclaimed HBO Western Deadwood may not be dead after all.

Ian McShane, who portrayed menacing bar owner Al Swearengen, said that Deadwood creator David Milch has been talking about a return to Sheriff Bullock's dusty town, but has yet to approach HBO.

"You never know," he said. "You never know. Don't say no. Never count anything out. I've always have a sneaking thing in the back of my mind that that would be the best comeback ever. There's unfinished business. It was a great show. I can't give it away," he said slyly. "So we'll see."{/quote

It isn't clear if the new incarnation of Deadwood will be the long-rumored version for the big screen or if it will be a return to the small screen.
