The fine folks over at HBO announced today that they have ordered the Jonathan Nolan adaptation of writer/director Michael Crichton’s 1973 sci-fi film WESTWORLD to series for 2015. If you've been following the progress of the show then you already know how awesome this is considering the high calibre talent behind it. Nolan wrote the pilot with this wife, Lisa Joy, and directed the episode with a cast including Anthony Hopkins, Evan Rachel Wood, Ed Harris, Jeffrey Wright, James Marsden, and Rodrigo Santoro.

The movie revolved around a malfunctioning Wild West robot at a futuristic adult amusement park while the official logline for the series is:  

Westworld is a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin.

With that, we still don’t know how Nolan’s version will change the original ideas presented over thirty years ago. Either way, the material is there to make for some great TV watching. It was just last week we told you that Nolan is developing another potential HBO show, an adaptation of Isaac Asimov’s sci-fi series Foundation. HBO says “2015” for Westworld so we will be sure to keep you posted.

Meanwhile, check out the Vines announcing the Westworld news below and try and make sense of it for me.
