HBO is launching a remake of the 1973 movie starring Yul Brynner, Westworld.
Westworld is a futuristic theme park where paying guests pretend to be gunslingers in an artificial Wild West populated by androids. But what happens when those androids achieve sentience? This fabulous escapist fantasy suddenly takes on a very grim & chilling reality.
Created by Lisa Joy Nolan, directed by Jonathan Nolan, & produced by JJ Abrams, this show has the potential of becoming HBOs best new show since Game of Thrones.
The pilot has been greenlit. Subsequent episodes are currently shooting. The expected release date is for late summer 2015.
