What would you prefer for Westworld?
Disneyland or, "Wally World," with the evil robots. I'd love to see Hopkins as some kind of alternate universe Walt Disney - evil Walt.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

Ed Harris has signed to star in Westworld. From Deadline Hollywood:

Inspired by Michael Crichton’s 1973 sci-fi movie set at an amusement park, Westworld is described as a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin. Harris will play The Man in Black — the distillation of pure villainy into one man.

The original Westworld had three different worlds-- Westworld, Medievalworld, and Romanworld, I think-- so hopefully this show will have multiple worlds as well. I'm fine with them focusing on the Western element, though-- I like genre-bending Westerns.

Me too, and then if the show continues we could always go to the other areas in future seasons. I think it could be actually kind of fun if each season had a different theme. Western for season 1, Roman for 2, and Medival for 3, if they stick with the ones RJDiogenes mentioned.

Thandie Newton joins Westworld pilot

Newton will play the eautiful and razor-sharp Maeve Millay, who is a genius for reading people and a knack for survival. Maeve is the Westworld madame whose seen-it-all-before worldview is about to be truly challenged.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

I'm glad to see Michelle Forbes getting a new gig.
From what I've read about the comics online, I know that

I just looked Copely up on Wikipedia and according to that this will be his first regular TV gig. I liked him in District 9, so I look forward to seeing him in this.

Saw something about a Minority Report based series... which sounds a bit X-Files/Fringe-like...

Steven Spielberg Developing Minority Report TV Series

Spielberg has hired Godzilla scribe Max Borenstein to write the project, and Spielberg's Amblin TV would produce. In recent years, Spielberg has taken on more TV projects through his production company, including Falling Skies, Extant and the upcoming Red Band Society. According to the site, Spielberg is expected to be heavily involved in Minority Report's small-screen adaptation.
Could be this be the next CBS Summer series?
