    HBO's Westworld

    This looks very interesting

    Looks like HBO was really happy with J. J. Abrams and Jonathan Nolan's Westworld pilot, an adaptation of Michael Crichton's 1973 novel of the same name. News of the pilot first came out over a year ago; today, accompanied by some bizarre tweets (and the Vine, above), HBO has confirmed that Westworld will be given a full season order and will debut next year.

    The premiere episode was directed by Jonathan Nolan (Interstellar co-writer and, yes, Christopher's brother) and co-written by both Nolan and Lisa Joy. The series will star Anthony Hopkins as an inventor who runs a futuristic theme park full of lifelike androids. According to THR, James Marsden, Evan Rachel Wood, and Thandie Newton will portray the androids and can be killed and replaced frequently, giving everyone a chance to play multiple characters. (The cast reportedly signed multi-year deals.) Ed Harris, Miranda Otto, and Jeffrey Wright will also star in the series.


    The sci-fi western is being executive produced by Abrams, his Bad Robot Productions co-founder Bryan Burk, Jerry Wentraub, Nolan and Joy. Jonathan Nolan is also working on an adaptation of Isaac Asimov's Foundation for HBO.

    I liked the movie - Yul Brynner was a really creepy bad guy. I can see where an updated version would be good, and this is a great cast.

    Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don't recognize them.

    I know. When he first said that, I was like, "weird that he doesn't see that door." I still didn't get it.
