New HBO series: Westworld
The 1973 feature film Westworld with Richard Benjamin (Peter Martin) and Yul Brynner (The Gunslinger) has been ripe for a remake. HBO’s edition spreads the story over 10 episodes which debuted on Oct. 2.
The original story from the ’73 movie centred on a robot malfunction creating terror (and death) for vacationers at a futuristic, adult-themed amusement park. HBO’s series cast includes Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris (as “The Man In Black”), James Marsden, and Evan Rachel Wood.
