Development News - Anthony Hopkins & Evan Rachel Wood Give High Pedigree Credentials to HBO Drama Pilot 'Westworld'

Development News - July 23, 2014

HBO's Westworld.

  • Oscar winner Anthony Hopkins (Silence of the Lambs) and Evan Rachel Wood (Mildred Pierce) will topline the drama pilot from writer-director Jonathan Nolan. In his first TV series role, Hopkins will play Dr. Robert Ford, the brilliant, taciturn and complicated Creative Director, Chief Programmer and Chairman of the Board of Westworld who has an uncompromising creative vision for the park - and unorthodox methods of achieving it. Wood will play Dolores Abernathy, the provincial, beautiful, kind and quintessential farm girl of the frontier West - who is about to discover that her entire idyllic existence is an elaborately constructed lie.
