Evan Rachel Wood is set to star in a J.J. Abrams remake of 1973's Westworld--a Michael Crichton film, according to The Hollywood Reporter. This time they'll stretch out Crichton's tale into a series for HBO. Mike Sheppard at AskMen calls the original film starring Yul Brynner a "cult classic" that's perfectly suited to what Abrams does best.
Anthony Hopkins will co-star with Wood and play Dr. Robert Ford, who oversees a creepy theme park called, yup, Westworld. It's a bit of Jurassic Park with some The Truman Show mixed in. Wood's character--Dolores Abernathy-- finds out her life has been controlled by forces she knew nothing about. Hopkins will do everything but call her Clarise.
