Viewers saw the wild, wild West get a high-tech twist in 1973's Westworld, the late Michael Crichton’s directorial debut that takes place in an adult amusement park populated by androids, and next year HBO is bringing us back to the park with their series reimagining of Crichton's cautionary technology tale. Giving us a glimpse into the show is a photo of Ingrid Bolsø Berdal's character taking aim with a rifle.

“A dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin”, Westworld is a drama series comprised of one-hour episodes that will premiere on HBO in 2015. The show is executive produced, written, and directed by Jonathan Nolan (Person of Interest creator) and also written/executive produced by Lisa Joy.

Westworld stars Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Miranda Otto, Rodrigo Santoro, Shannon Woodward, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Angela Sarafyan, and Simon Quarterman.

Joining Nolan and Joy as executive producers are J.J. Abrams, Jerry Weintraub, and Bryan Burk. Athena Wickham produces, with Kathy Lingg and Susie Ekins co-producing."

You can also see a snippet of footage from Westworld near the end of their newly released "yearender" video, which we have below.
