HBO has unveiled the first photo from its all-star TV series remake/reimagining of Michael Crichton’s classic 1973 sci-fi feature “Westworld” in the latest issue of EW (via Film Divider). The original is set in an amusement park where visitors can live out their wildest fantasies with the help of androids, but things go awry when the creations malfunction.
Series creator Jonathan Nolan tell the magazine: “It’s a place where you can be whoever you want, and there are no consequences – no rules, no limitations. What happens in Westworld, stays in Westworld. What we can tell you is that we intend to make the most ambitious, subversive, f—ed up television series. The things that keep you up at night, any of those things that trouble you, that is exactly what the show is about.”
The photo features actress Ingrid Bolso Berdal who stars in the sci-fi western alongside Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, and Rodrigo Santoro.
