Farnum), Kim Dickens (Joanie Stubbs) and Gerald McRaney (George Hearst). The film will also feature new cast member Jade Pettyjohn (Caroline).HBO’s press release coincides with W. Earl Brown’s impromptu Twitter AMA back in August confirming Deadwood's timeline would indeed take place 10 years after the events of Season 3. Brown also confirmed “everyone from the main cast who still draws air” are set to return, with the exception of Titus Welliver (Silas Adams) who is filming Amazon’s Bosch. Additionally, Brown confirmed that Powers Boothe’s “CY Tolliver” will not be recast but his “absence is not ignored” in the film.Past Deadwood helmer Dan Minahan will direct based on a script by Deadwood creator David Milch.
