HBO has greenlit a pilot for a TV show based on 1973 sci-fi movie Westworld, about lifelike robots breaking their programming to murder guests in a luxury theme park. Deadline reports the production will keep the setting of the original movie, and will star Anthony Hopkins and Evan Rachel Wood in a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin. Westworld was set in a Delos, a theme park made up of three distinct zones — Medieval World, Roman World, and the eponymous West World — and populated with humanoid androids. The pilot will keep the films theme park setting Fittingly, given the subject material, the TV pilot is being developed by J.J. Abrams Bad Robot production company.
