The universe that is Westworld on HBO continues to grow. First we heard that Anthony Hopkins & Evan Rachel Wood were starring. Next a bevy of talent joined the cast from HBO veterans to brand new faces.
But all of these beautiful, kind faces needed something to balance them out, right? How about an evil villain for the robotic theme park of the future? The Man in Black. No, seriously– that’s his name. He’s described as “the distillation of pure villainy into one man.” Sound interesting? With these names, this budget and this network behind it can Westworld possibly go wrong?
Westworld is heading into production soon, hence the waterfall of names emerging around the work. We expect it to premiere next Summer, probably in True Blood’s current slot. The rest of the schedule is just too busy to place it anywhere else. That’s just our speculation, of course. We’ll get you an air date when it’s official.
