Is Westworld Remake Finally Coming?

by | January 18, 2006 | Comments

Director Tarsem Singh, best known for doing R.E.M videos such as "Losing My Religion," has been tapped (according to IMDb) to to helm the update of the 1973 classic "Westworld."

The film, which was written and directed by Michael Crichton, depicts a theme park where all your fantasies can come true, thanks to an army of high-end robots. In short order, the dream becomes a nightmare when the robots go on a killing frenzy. The film, which was an inspiration for later works such as "The Terminator" and "Jurassic Park" (also a Crichton work), was a great late career triumph for veteran actor Yul Brynner.

Pre-Governors office, there were rumors that Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, and Bruce Willis all wanted in on the remake. One plan is for Sly and Arnie to play the James Brolin / Richard Benjamin characters with Willis playing the android. Due to the "Terminator" connection, Arnie thought it might be fun to be the one being stalked. This, of course, is likely to change as casting and politics continue to develop.
