Anthony Hopkins and Evan Rachel Wood have been chosen as the leads for the new HBO pilot for Westworld.

westworld 2If you’re not familiar with Westworld, it’s a sci-fi western written by Michael Crichton. Yul Brynner stars as a malfunctioning android in a futuristic Western-themed amusement park, there are 3 ‘worlds in the park but the western one is where the action takes place.
Brynner plays Gunslinger, a robot programmed to instigate gunfights. The guns given to the park guests have temperature sensors that prevent them from shooting humans or anything else living, but allow them to kill the “cold-blooded” androids. Pretty cool huh?

anthony-hopkins OK, so back to HBO. This new version of Westworld is described as “a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin.”  Hopkins will play, “Dr. Ford, the uncompromising creator of the park and conductor of the creations inside it, and he views the robots as utterly inhuman, little more than livestock. In the wider context of the show, he’s looking like a complex kind of ‘big bad’.”

Evan-Rachel-Wood-PhotoEvan Rachel Wood’s character “Dolores is created to be a sassy farm girl; the beautiful girl next door type who has no idea that the life she’s living is a lie. She’s essentially a slave to the guests of the park but has no idea of her true nature.”

I think thi has a lot of potential. HBO creates such high quality TV that if anyone was going to do it, HBO are the way to go. I’ll be keeping an eye to speak.
