The scifi series, dubbed as is a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin, will follow the drama that ensues at an adult amusement park where the android ‘amusements’ begin to malfunction and turn on their guests.
Westworld will star Anthony Hopkins as the park owner and android creator. Also starring are James Marsden, Evan Rachel Wood, Thandie Newton Ed Harris, Miranda Otto and Jeffrey Wright among others.
The series is written by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, who also serve as executive producers and comes from by JJ Abrams’ Bad Robot, Jerry Weintraub Productions and Kilter Films in association with Warner Bros. Television.
HBO shared the announcement in a rather cryptic (Golden Ratio) tweet today via Twitter.
