JJ Abrams new project is producer on the HBO show Westworld. The show as actually announced awhile back, but has hit a few roadblocks on it’s way. However it has officially been announced that the show will premier on October 2nd. Westworld is based on the Michael Crichton movie from 1973. The show will also have a pretty incredible cast including Anthony Hopkins, Evan Rachel Wood, and Ed Harris. I am personally thrilled at the idea of a show blending the sci-fi and western genres. It’s great that the show has a premier date and seems to have worked out many of the hiccups that have slowed it down. We will bring you more news as it becomes available.
