Bro, all these TV journalists have spent the past seventeen weeks at the TCA summer press tour! They are exhausted and dehydrated! They don't need to try to follow up on this kind of thing: they want to go to bed! Plus, there's the fact that this isn't the first time such rumours have swirled, and at least one critic announced she no longer had the strength to hope.

But our friend Alan Sepinwall doesn't sleep, and very responsibly put together a story with all the facts he was able to confirm. Short version: like, maybe? According to HBO's spokesperson, "In reference to Garret Dillahunt's tweet regarding the rumored Deadwood movie, there have only been very preliminary conversations." If I add those "preliminary conversations" to the ones that have happened in my house, are we any closer? And Dillahunt: ever hear of breaking news IN THE MORNING?!
