Westworld to Film in July; Late 2015 Premiere?

Westworld to Film in July; Late 2015 Premiere?

Ever since HBO gave us that Westworld tease last year we’ve been keeping a close eye on the production schedule. The pilot was shot in 2014 but the series itself has still yet to be filmed.  In an interview last week with Simon Quarterman, an actor who plays a character named Lee Sizemore on HBO’s Westworld, Simon says that they won’t begin filming until July: Just now, things are really beginning to take off. I start shooting Westworld for HBO in July. We shot the pilot last year and we got picked up so I’m very excited about that. I think everyone’s in for a real treat with that. I haven’t seen any of the scripts...

HBO Now is Available… Now

HBO Now is Available… Now

Today is one of the most important days in HBO’s history.  For decades now, HBO has been a premium cable channel, available via a traditional subscription and access to a coaxial cable in your living room wall.  A few years back HBO launched HBO Go, a streaming app that allows you to watch HBO shows on the go.  But there was just one problem: you still needed a traditional cable package from a corporation like Comcast, Time Warner Cable or DISH Network.  Not a problem for everyone but for some, it was everything. Effective immediately, the game has changed forever.  HBO Now, the new streaming service similar to HBO Go is available...

Another hint that he is carving time out to work on the new...

Update – If you haven’t been watching VICE than what the hell is wrong with you!
