Westworld is one of my favourite movies. Yul Brynner as the unstoppable Man in Black in a futuristic theme park gone wrong.

The Micheal Crichton book and film is getting another chance at the small screen – there was a TV show in the 1980s called Beyond Westworld.

HBO has committed to a pilot from J.J. Abramsā€˜ Bad Robot, Person Of Interest creator Jonathan Nolan, producer Jerry Weintraub and Warner Bros TV.

A company called Bad Robot making a show about bad robots!

The show is described as a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin.

Nolan is set to direct the pilot.

There is a lot of potential here. I just hope they do not mess it up.

Anyone thinking they may get actors in to play robotic versions of themselves from other TV shows? What would you like to see in the show?
