J.J. Abrams’ production company Bad Robot and Warner Bros. TV are producing a pilot for HBO. The new series is an adaptation of the 1973 film WESTWORLD, starring Yul Brynner. The original movie was written and directed by Michael Crichton.

Jonathan Nolan is set to direct the pilot and is writing the script with his wife, Lisa Joy. Nolan and Joy will serve as executive producers with Bad Robot’s Bryan Burk and Jerry Weintraub.

The HBO rendition of Westworld is described as “a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin.”

Jonathan Nolan (The Dark Knight trilogy) is heading into his third season as executive producer and showrunner of the CBS series Person of Interest. He also worked on the screenplay for Christopher Nolan’s upcoming Interstellar.
