Sir Anthony Hopkins and Ed Harris will lead the cast of HBO’s upcoming drama series Westworld to air next year, Time Warner Inc’s cable network said on Monday.
“Westworld, based on the 1973 film of the same name directed by Michael Crichton will be executively produced by J.J. Abrams, Jerry Weintraub and Bryan Burk while Interstellar’s co-writer Jonathan Nolan will pen the one-hour episodes.” While Crichton’s film explored a futuristic adult amusement park thrown into chaos after a robot malfunction, the HBO series is described as “a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin.” HBO did not confirm how many episodes the show will include, or an exact date from which it will begin air. Westworld will also star Thandie Newton, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Shannon Woodward, Ingrid Bolso Berdal and Simon Quarterman.
