While most of the attention has focused on next year’s release and current production of Star Wars Episode VII, there is still another production that is only a few months away from hitting the smaller screen…Star Wars Rebels debuts on Disney XD in October…
Sir Anthony Hopkins (Silence of the Lambs, Thor) is climbing on board his first potential TV role in the pilot for Westworld, based on the classic 1973 movie by Michael Crichton (Jurassic Park).
Hopkins will play Dr. Robert Ford, the head of the fantasy park who has “unorthodox methods” for building his vision.
Evan Rachel Wood (True Blood, The Wrestler) will play Dolores Abernathy, “a sweet, Midwestern farm girl who has a very rude awakening during the series.”
Jonathan Nolan (Person of Interest, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises and the upcoming Interstellar) will direct from a script by himself and Lisa Joy (Burn Notice), with both producing alongside J.J. Abrams (Lost, Star Wars Episode VII), Jerry Weintraub (Ocean’s Eleven) and Bryan Burk (Revolution).
