A few months back, we had announced that Westworld, a film by Michael Crichton in 1973, was being reworked as a show on HBO. Well, HBO must have been pretty happy with the progress, because they have taken the thing to series, meaning we’ll be getting a season at least of the show.

You can read here for more of a description of the show, but suffice it to say that Anthony Hopkins, Jonathan Nolan, and some other folks are now either robots in the old west, or fighting robots in the old west. It’s about time.

All we know about the show is that it’s airing some time in 2015. It’s been filming for a while, so probably not too far into 2015, though. Brace yourself for COWBOY ROBOTS.

(EW)

Anthony Hopkins And Evan Rachel Wood To Star In HBO Pilot ‘Westworld’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/anthony-hopkins-and-evan-rachel-wood-to-star-in-hbo-pilot-westworld/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/anthony-hopkins-and-evan-rachel-wood-to-star-in-hbo-pilot-westworld/#comments Wed, 23 Jul 2014 16:39:53 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=263284 I don't think it's gonna be a rom-com.

In case you needed more proof that the days of TV being a dumping ground for washed-up movie stars are over, take a look at True Detective, then at HBO’s upcoming pilot Westworld. The new series, if picked up will star no less than Anthony Hopkins and noted Marilyn Manson-dater Evan Rachel Wood.

Westworld is a serial adaptation of a 1973 film written by Jurrassic Park’s Michael Crichton. The film was set at an amusement park, but I’m thinking over the course of the series, they may need to leave the amusement park now and again. J.J. Abrams Bad Robot studios is producing, because that’s what they do.

Hopkins will play the chairman of the park, and Wood will play a farm girl who discovers her life is a painfully constructed lie.

Sounds like an HBO show, all right!
