We may not know who the new leads will be for True Detective’s next season, but we do know about the leads for another HBO drama.
That being Westworld, an HBO pilot that will star Anthony Hopkins, playing a
cannibalistic doctor, and Evan Rachel Wood as the pretty girl next door.
The show, inspired by the 1973 sci-fi film, centers on a futuristic theme park, which offers tourists a realistic experience in themed worlds.
Hopkins is a member of the Westworld creative team who is willing to go to extremes to achieve his vision, a vision Wood’s character discovers has been a perfect lie.
James Marsden might also be joining the cast in the pilot.
The project comes from Jonathan Noal, creator of J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot. Nolan will be executive producing Westworld alongside Abrams.
