[ad name=”468×60-text-film-ad”]

Ed Harris has signed on to star opposite Anthony Hopkins, Evan Rachel Wood and James Marsden in HBO’s Westworld, inspired by Michael Crichton’s 1973 sci-fi film of the same name. J.J. Abrams production company Bad Robot will executive produce the pilot alongside veteran producer Jerry Weintraub. Harris is lined up to play the steely eyed central gunslinging cyborg villain.

Hopkins is set to play Dr. Robert Ford, the brilliant chief programmer of Westworld, who has an uncompromising creative vision for the park. Evan Rachel Wood will portray Dolores Abernathy, a farm girl of the frontier West — who is about to discover that her entire idyllic existence is an elaborately constructed lie. Yul Brynner, Richard Benjamin and James Brolin starred in the original.

Plot Summary

Inspired by Michael Crichton’s 1973 film “Westworld,” the drama is billed as a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin.

Evan Rachel Wood will portray Dolores Abernathy, the quintessential farm girl of the frontier West — who is about to discover that her entire idyllic existence is an elaborately constructed lie.
