HBO has given an official series order to J.J. Abrams’ new sci-fi series “Westworld, ” according to Deadline. The show is based on Michael Crichton’s 1973 film, and it was adapted for the small screen by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy.
The series has an incredible cast that includes Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, Miranda Otto and Jeffrey Wright.
The story is set at an amusement park called, you guessed it, “Westworld,” and it’s described as “a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin.”
Harris will play one of the central leads in the story known as The Man in Black, “the distillation of pure villainy into one man.” Marsden is will play a character named Teddy Flood, “a mysterious new arrival to a small frontier town. Teddy quickly proves both his charm, and his talent with a revolver, while his pursuit of a local beauty launches him on a dark odyssey.” Eddie Rouse has also joined the production and will play Kissy, “a laconic, American-Indian who deals cards and contraband from the town saloon.”
The 1973 movie starring Yul Brenner, James Brolin and Richard Benjamin is a bona fide classic; essential viewing if you haven’t seen it already. Abrams certainly has the golden touch as of late, and with a fantastic cast and proven premise as his disposal, I think he’s going to have another big winner on his hands here.
Good news & bad news. The good news is the photos I had planned to add are now up. The bad news? I had to re-install the gallery. The old one will remain open as I move the photos over to the new Gallery.
I had an update ready to go but discovered I am unable to add new photos. Keep checking back.
Rumored for a role since last month, James Marsden has, according to The Hollywood Reporter, officially signed on to join the cast of HBO and Bad Robot’s upcoming “Westworld” opposite Sir Anthony Hopkins, Evan Rachel Wood, Jeffrey Wright, Rodrigo Santoro, Shannon Woodward, Ingrid Bolso Berdal, Angela Sarafyan, Eddie Rouse, Kyle Bornheimer and Simon Quarterman.
The original 1973 film, both written and directed by Michael Crichton, takes place in a future amusement park wherein visitors interact with androids in recreations of famous historical environments. When something goes wrong, however, the androids turn deadly.
Westworld received a sequel, Futureworld, in 1976 and was spun off into a short-lived series, “Beyond Westworld,” in 1980.
Marsden, who starred earlier this year in Walk of Shame, will play a character named Teddy Flood, described as being “a mysterious new arrival to a small frontier town. He quickly proves both his charm – and his talent with a revolver. His pursuit of a local beauty launches him on a dark odyssey.”
HBO has already given the planned series a pilot commitment with Jonah Nolan directing the pilot and writing alongside his wife (and “Burn Notice” scribe) Lisa Joy.
Universal Pictures has pulled the James Marsden and Karl Urban film The Loft from the release calendar barely two months before it was set to hit theaters.
The thriller was set for an Aug. 29 theatrical release date, but there has been no word as to why it was yanked or when it will be released now, Deadline reports.
The film, which also stars Rhona Mitra, Wentworth Miller and Eric Stonestreet, was based upon a 2008 film out of Belgium directed by Eric Van Looy, who helmed the original. The Loft follows five married men who quietly share a penthouse for affairs and one day they stumble upon a dead woman and believe each other capable of murder.
In the empty Aug. 29 slot, Universal is bumping back As Above/So Below from Legendary Pictures, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The John Erick Dowdle-directed flick was originally set for Aug. 15.
The Loft is the second summer flick to be pulled from the release calendar, behind the much higher profile Jupiter Ascending at Warner Bros. The latest film from the Wachowskis was set for July 18 release date, but will now be out next February.
