HBO’s sci-fi drama Westworld is finally on the schedule.
After months of delays, cast changes and a production hiatus, the ambitious series from showrunners Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy is now confirmed to air this fall. According to HBO, the season will consist of 10 episodes.
The cast includes Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton and Jeffrey Wright.
The set-up: Loosely based on the 1973 sci-fi film from Michael Crichton, Westworld is about a futuristic theme park where visitors can live out their dark fantasies with ultra-realistic android – until something, of course, goes wrong.
And for those of you who forgot the AWESOME original staring Yul Brynner, then here is the trailer to remind you. Such a great performance with perfect casting as the cowboy android.
