Westworld HBO TV Series Is A Go
James Marsden Joins J.J. Abrams HBO Westworld TV Series
The forthcoming Westworld HBO TV series, from producers J.J Abrams and Jerry Weintraub continues to expand on its already impressive roster of talent. The sci-fi drama series that has been adapted by J.J Abrams from Michael Crichton’s 1973 cult classic film (of the same name) centring on a futuristic theme park where androids fulfill dark human desires in a variety of different themed locations.
Making up the impressive cast list thus far includes;
James Marsden and Eddie Rouse
Evan Rachel Wood and Anthony Hopkins
Jeffrey Wright, Shannon Woodward and Ed Harris
According to reports, one of the roles filled by Rodrigo Santoro, seems to be the Yul Brynner iconic character from the original film, the unstoppable and terrifying killer android cowboy. While details are still scarce, I would imagine that the pilot will be slotted in for release sometime in 2015. Does the prospect of a JJ Abrams and HBO collaboration tickle your fancy, or do you think Westworld should be left alone?
