WestWorld pbkThe promo is beginning for the HBO series Westworld.

Headlines such as HBO’s Westworld Looks Like a Thrilling Take on Michael Crichton’s Sci-Fi Parable may make it sound like it’s based on a book, but the reference is to Crichton’s film, which he wrote and directed in 1973.

There is a book connection, however. The screenplay was published as a mass market paperback at the time of the movie.

Just for fun, here’s the trailer for the original movie.

The series is set to begin some time in 2016. No tie-in has been announced.
