Thandie Newton Joins HBO’s ‘Westworld’

Thandie Newton has been added to the cast of “Westwood,” HBO’s one-hour drama pilot adaptation of Michael Crichton’s 1973 sci-fi film of the same name.

Newton will play the eautiful and razor-sharp Maeve Millay, who is a genius for reading people and a knack for survival. Maeve is the Westworld madame whose seen-it-all-before worldview is about to be truly challenged.

She joins a cast that includes Anthony Hopkins, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Jeffrey Wright and Ed Harris.

The pilot, from Bad Robot and Warner Brothers Television, was co-written by “Person of Interest” creator Jonathan Nolan and “Pushing Daisies” and “Burn Notice” scribe Lisa Joy, with Nolan set to direct. The project, set at a futuristic, adult-themed amusement park, is described as a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin.

Newton currently stars in “Rogue” on the Audience Network, which was recently picked up for a third season.
