This Entertainment Weekly article and several others are sending up internet smoke signals about a way cool new HBO series in the works. Anthony Hopkins is to star in a TV series based on the cool old movie, Westworld. From J. J. Abrams, no less! That talent combo alone is enough to have me excited by just the knowledge that there will be at least a pilot. The little plot tidbits emerging sound like it will be a new take on an already awesome science fiction concept. It’s still in such early stages, I guess, that all we can do is anticipate the first trailer…someday. I’m game, with a project like this bringing the prospect of the great Anthony Hopkins into our living rooms for an extended visit on the small screen.
