With 2018 fast approaching, HBO released a new "coming soon" video that includes brief footage of numerous projects, including the new Fahrenheit 451 film and the next season of Westworld.

Watch the new video below to get a glimpse of what's to come on Westworld Season 2 and the Fahrenheit 451 film.

Directed by Ramin Bahrani (99 Homes) and based on the seminal Ray Bradbury book of the same name, Fahrenheit 451 stars Michael B. Jordan (Creed, Chronicle), Sofia Boutella (2017's The Mummy), and Michael Shannon (Nocturnal Animals, Bug). In addition to starring in the movie, Jordan is also one of the executive producers on the film.

Essential reading that is just as important now as it was when it was originally published in 1953, Fahrenheit 451 is Bradbury at his most thought-provoking, and it should be interesting to see his timeless story come to life on screen once again (it was previously adapted in a 1966 film of the same name), especially the mechanical hound with a wicked tranquilizer that comes out of its snout.

Westworld Season 2 premieres sometime in 2018. Wildfires in California have halted production on the second season, so we'll have to wait and see if that will delay the return of the renowned show.

The cast for the series includes Ben Barnes (Logan), Ingrid Bols Berdal (Armistice), Ed Harris (Man in Black), Luke Hemsworth (Stubbs), James Marsden (Teddy), Thandie Newton (Maeve), Simon Quarterman (Lee Sizemore), Rodrigo Santoro (Hector), Angela Sarafyan (Clementine), Jimmi Simpson (William), Tessa Thompson (Charlotte), Evan Rachel Wood (Dolores), Shannon Woodward (Elsie), and Jeffrey Wright (Bernard/Arnold).
