‘Westworld’ To Be The Next ‘Game of Thrones’ In HBO? Creators Already Know Show's Ending
When HBO announced that they will be adapting a TV version of Michael Crichton's 1973 sci-fi "Westworld," the internet went berserk most especially since the network tapped J.J. Abrams and Jonathan Nolan (brother of film director Christopher Nolan) as executive producers.
Esquire reported that it looks like it will likely compete with "Game of Thrones" in the sexual violence category and that there will be no shortage of nudity in "Westworld." But of course, being that it will be done by HBO, it will definitely be made tastefully.
"Westworld," co-creator and executive producer Lisa Joy Nolan said in an interview, "Westworld is an examination of human nature: the best parts of human nature...but also, violence, sexual violence have sadly been a fact of human history since the beginning of human history."
She further added that the story is not a fetishization of those acts but rather about exploring the crimes and the torment of the characters with indignity and death.

A few months ago, the show ran into some production trouble and had to temporarily shut down to give more time to work on the final episodes of "Westworld." But it seems like the delay was necessary for the creators not only to catch up on the delays in writing but also to polish the show until its series finale.
Actor James Marsden said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, "It wasn't about getting the first 10 [episodes] done, it was about mapping out what the next 5 or 6 years are going to be, We wanted everything in line so that when the very last episode airs and we have our show finale, five or seven years down the line, we knew how it was going to end the first season - that's the way Jonah and [executive producer J.J. Abrams] operate. They're making sure all the ducks are in the row. And it's a testament to Jonah and Lisa and HBO that we got them right, especially the last three scripts. They could have rushed them and get spread too thin. They got them right, and when they were right, we went and shot them."
"Westworld" airs on October 02, 2016, 9PM ET on HBO.
