Westworld to be made into HBO series

September 1st, 2013 by bash Comments

A television series based on Michael Crichton’s sci-fi thriller Westworld is to be made into a TV series, according to Deadline.

J.J. Abrams and Jonah Nolan are said to be teaming with Warner Bros. Television’s Jerry Weintraub for the series which will air on HBO.

The original film, both written and directed by 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.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
