Starring Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, and Thandie Newton. Coming from J.J. Abrams and Michael Chricton, and ready to hit the small screens sometime next year, the story of WESTWORLD will be set at a futuristic amusement park in which androids play people of the Wild West without knowing that they aren't real people! It is described as a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin. Ben Barnes will be Logan, a self indulgent ladies man who is a return visitor to Westworld, the character is well versed in inhaling all the pleasures that it has to offer.
