Although it won’t be available to watch online, as Entertainment Weekly notes, HBO has let loose a couple of photos from the sci-fi show. Recent updates will be placed at the top of the page and older news will be filed to the rest of the article.
Once Upon a Time’s Eion Bailey will star in Westworld. Danish actress Sidse Babbett Knudsen, best known for her work on Borgen, will now play Theresa Cullen, the operations head of Westworld, according to Deadline. And as far as we can tell, people abided. The trailer has not yet been released.
The beautifully crafted troll job by Mr. Nolan wasn’t the only Westworld news of the day.
The forthcoming drama series’ first teaser trailer debuted at Comic-Con on Saturday during the panel for CBS’ Person of Interest, with HBO releasing images from the series on Twitter.
Also, we’ve seen a series of new images from the show, couresey of Collider…
We likely won’t see HBO’s Westworld until 2016. The sci-fi thriller is based on the 1973 film of the same name directed and written by Michael Crichton, and centers around a technologically sophisticated amusement park that recreates long gone time periods for patrons to enjoy. HBO described it early on as “a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin”.
Like I said, there will be plenty of both f-words in this.
Who’s in the Westworld cast?
The late Jerry Weintraub also served as an executive producer.
The series stars Anthony Hopkins (Silence of the Lambs), Ed Harris (A lovely Mind), James Marsden (Party of Five), Evan Rachel Wood (Mildred Pierce), Thandie Newton (Crash), and Jeffrey Wright (Angels in America). Person of Interest creator and The Dark Knight co-writer Jonathan Nolan wrote the script with Burn Notice scribe Lisa Joy, with Nolan directing the pilot.
