Westworld HBO Reboot Adds Cast


The HBO series reboot of Michael Crichton’s 1973 sci-fi movie tale of a fantasy robot theme park gone astray has added cast members to go along with Anthony Hopkins and Evan Rachel Wood in the lead roles. Joining Hopkins and Wood will be Jeffrey Wright [“Boardwalk Empire”], Rodrigo Santoro [“300: Rise of an Empire”], Shannon Woodward [“Raising Hope”], Ingrid Bolso Berdal [“Hercules”], Angela Sarafyan [“Paranoia”] and Simon Quarterman [“The Devil Inside”].

Crichton passed away in 2008 but was the writer of several sci-fi classics beginning with “The Andromeda Strain” and going throughout the “Jurassic Park” franchise. In “Westworld”, he depicts a fantasy camp gone wrong as wealthy people on holiday select a wild west theme for their fantasy robot theme park adventure – only to have a robot malfunction and go rogue. The HBO series – being produced by JJ Abrams – will expand that concept to the world’s entire existence being manipulated by artificial intelligence madness in a “Stepford Wives”-like manner.

HBO’s “Westworld” TV series reboot has been approved for a pilot episode which is expected to air in 2015.
