Two Big Names Emerge for HBO’s Westworld

Two Big Names Emerge for HBO’s Westworld

We usually like to wait until there is some sort of substantial evidence before reporting a news story like this. But so long as we frame it in the proper context, that of “rumor status” in this case, we think that most HBO Watchers are able to handle information like this and enjoy the speculation either way. FilmDivider claims to have sources close to the Abrams/Nolan Westworld project whispering of casting nods to Sir Anthony Hopkins (yep, the one and only) and HBO vet (True Blood, Mildred Pierce) Evan Rachel Wood. Hopkins would play the role of Dr. Ford, the man who runs the futuristic theme park full of robots (yeah,...

Rupert Murdoch Tries & Fails to Purchase HBO

Rupert Murdoch Tries & Fails to Purchase HBO

We all got a taste of what Larry could still do on HBO’s air and most of us wanted still more. The TCA press tour has been giving us tidbits on every show’s future this year as HBO’s top brass field questions about Game of Thrones, True Detective and even Curb Your Enthusiasm.

Westworld Pilot Begins Casting Now, Filming Soon

We’ve been covering HBO’s planned adaptation of Micheal Crichton’s Westworld for almost a year now. But now we can report that the show has finally begun casting and will hopefully start shooting this summer. During a Q&A session at the TCA press tour HBO’s president of programming, Michael Lombardo said this: “Hope we’re going to start shooting this summer. We’re casting right now, and I assume, you know, announcements will come out when those deals happen. Obviously, it takes place within some time in the unspecified future within an amusement park populated by robots. Beyond that, I think it’s...
