I’ve known about this project for some time, but I only first saw a trailer for it a few minutes ago. I was so taken with it, I hopped on my laptop so I could put this together. Felt like something I should share.
You may not know much about this concept. it’s been around for years now. “Westworld” was originally a film made in 1973. It was written and directed by novelist Michael Crichton, and it starred Yul Brynner. Arguably, it’s most famous moment came when “The Simpsons” used it as an influence for part of the episode where the family gets stuck in Itchy and Scratchy Land.
A long-form attempt at the story looks truly fascinating. It’s in great hands, too. Jonathan Nolan, Lisa Joy, and J.J. Abrams are only a few of the names listed on the HBO series. Nolan actually directed the pilot, which is scheduled to premiere on October 2nd, 2016.
Also, Ed Harris is the Man in Black. That’s Bryan Cranston as Walter White potential right there.
