The HBO series is based on the 1973 film called Westworld, which was adapted and created for TV by Johnathan Nolan and Lisa Joy for HBO productions. Westworld is scheduled to premiere on October 2nd 2016 on HBO, which will star Anthony Hopkins and Ed Harris.

I still fall for the common cliché plot twists of a romance novel and love it. I am an avid doll collector and play the viola when no one is watching.
