Warner Brothers Remaking Westworld Movie

13 Comments

Apparently Warner Brothers is remaking Michael Crichton’s 1973 movie “Westworld” and no one bothered to tell me about it. Dammit people, keep me informed! In any case, Sci Fi Wire has an interview with the remake’s writer, Billy Ray, who says he will write, but not direct the movie. Ray also revealed that WB had approached Michael Crichton to redo his own movie a few years ago, but Crichton replied (and this is why I’m loving this guy): “I already remade that movie; the remake was called Jurassic Park.” He-yo!

Michael Crichton wrote and directed the original film, which was released in 1973 and starred Yul Brynner, Richard Benjamin and James Brolin. The futuristic drama cast Benjamin and Brolin as visitors to an amusement park where visitors can play out entertainment fantasies with the help of virtual reality and robots. The trouble starts when the robots begin to fight back.

My favorite part of “Westworld” was the notion that guys were paying money to get laid by robot prostitutes. I mean, wouldn’t your money be better spent on real high-priced call girls, guys?

    I don’t think you’re really disagreeing with me. How and when are at God’s discression; but, I don’t believe he’ll do it without letting his prophets tell everyone about it. Excuse me while I jump onto my soapbox: “One year down, sicne I wrote the first comment… two and change to go.”

    No man may know the hour and the day; but, nothing was said about the year. Multiply and replenish, not overpopulate and destroy.

    Distruction is a relative concept, after all there has to be something for the meek to inherit. As for me, I have loftier goals. One thing I’ve found out about tribulationists. They come in two flavors: post and pre. And as my daddy always said: “There are two kinds of people in this world… those who put everything into two categories, and those who don’t.”

    If God’s word doesnt’ come to his prophets in visions and dreams, then this idiot savant doesn’t know what he’s saying when he says… “only a prophet can judge a prophet!”

    In case I wasn’t clear… I agree with you. We don’t have the power; only that given to us by God. No one says what I said isn’t part of the plan. I only hope it isn’t. I don’t know the hour and the day, and I hope I’m misunderstanding what I do know and the compulsion he puts on me to say it. Out of the mouth of two or more witnesses!
