Currently in production for HBO is the series Westworld based on the novel by Michael Crichton about an amusement park for adults where all the members of staff are robots. Each part of the park is dedicated to a different era, Weastworld being just one of them.
Dr Robert Ford is the creative director and chairman of the board whilst Dolores Abernathy is a farm girl in Westworld who doesn’t realise initially that she is a robot.
Made into a brilliant movie in 1973 with an iconic performance by Yul Brynner as cowboy robot who goes rogue there is no word on whether this will make it into the movie or not but interest in the series will be high.
More info will be added as it comes in.
