"Westworld" Remake Lands a Director

by | August 12, 2005 | Comments

Director Tarsem Singh, best known for the bizarre Jennifer Lopez thriller "The Cell," has been tapped by WB and producer Jerry Weintraub to helm their remake of "Westworld," says Variety. Long discussed as a project for Arnold Schwarzenegger, the remake looks to get underway with or without The Governator.

"Could the sci-fi pic be the vehicle the Governator uses to come home to Hollywood?

Schwarzenegger’s reps insist he’s not involved with the project at this point. But it’s certainly not a given that he won’t be in "Westworld" should he decide not to seek re-election in next year’s election or should he lose the race. His current terms ends in January 2007."

Screenwriters Michael Fenris and Michael Brancato were attached to pen the remake at one point; it’s unknown if they’ll still be on the case.

Written and directed by filmmaker/novelist Michael Crichton, the original "Westworld" dealt with futuristic amusement parks, dangerously defective robots, and some seriously unhappy customers.
