It’s been a while coming for Cinemax to get its Westworld difference off the ground, longer however given the myriad of generation difficulties that might understand the Bad Robot-produced drama sent to 2017. J.T. Abrams himself downplays any behind-the-scenes accounts however, noting which the network and all required want to make sure that they get it right.
“Westworld is one of those ideas I’ve wanted to work with for so long,” Abrams instructed Fortune Magazine from the project, which was last said to be undergoing re-shoots. “I had a meeting probably 21 years ago with Jordan Crichton [who wrote and directed the 1973 first film] about doing this. In addition to it’s taken a long time to get this likely.”
And while behind-the-scenes disagreements among HBO and manufacturer Jonathan Nolan were said to be producing delays on an already-storied creation, Abrams assures that it’ohydrates in the show’s best interest:
At the heart of Westworld is that this story of consciousness and oppression as well as discovery. It’s one of several projects I feel many grateful and blessed to be a part of. Exactly what [the directorial team has] done is very stunning and cool and also they’re not hastening it because of small business matters and the community is giving them the time. That is never a undesirable move.
Bizarre sex scandals aside, Bad Robot’utes Westworld remakes the 1973 tale as “a dim odyssey about the start of artificial mindset and the future of crime.” Person of Interest creator along with The Dark Knight co-writer Jonathan Nolan wrote the script with Burn Notice scribe Lisa Joy, with Nolan directing the pilot. Nolan in addition to Joy will govt produce with Abrams, Jerry Weintraub in addition to Bryan Burk.
The new series employs among its cast Anthony Hopkins, Evan Rachel Wood, Ed Harris, X-Men legend James Marsden, The Hunger Games along with Boardwalk Empire star Jeffrey Wright, Thandie Newton, Raising Hope lead Shannon Woodward, 300 legend Rodrigo Santoro, Angela Sarafyan, Simon Quarterman, Sidse Babett Knudsen, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Ben Barnes, Jimmi Simpson, and Clifton Collins, Junior.
Some of the cast people playing androids (Marsden, Newton, Wood) can also end up killed off and brought back with a new style, similar to how American Scary Story enables its solid to play different personas.
For those unfamiliar with the initial 1973 Yul Brynner-James Brolin film, Westworld advised the story of a potential resort wherein guests pay to live out there time period fantasies dropped at life by innovative human-like androids, before the robots started out malfunctioning and killing the resort’s team. The film created the sequel Futureworld, and ultimately the short-lived ‘80s TV series Beyond Westworld.
