Jonathan Nolan and J.J. Abrams, creators of CBS’s hit Person of Interest, have a new project getting underway: HBO has ordered a full season of Westworld.
It will be a one-hour drama, under the tagline “Westworld is a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin.”
The announced cast includes Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Miranda Otto, Rodrigo Santoro, Shannon Woodward, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Angela Sarafyan, Simon Quarterman — other than the 90-minute pilot that was shot earlier this year, no other details are available yet beyond “in 2015”.

For Slice of SciFi fans and listeners, Jonathan Nolan is also still working on a potential adaptation of Isaac Asimov’s Foundation, also potentially a future HBO project.
