FACTLAND – Here are 5 FACTS the Studio Exec FACT squad have learned about HBO’s Westworld.
The FACT squad have entered the park of Westworld and now we don’t know if we’re really or not or when we are.
1. Westworld is not meant to be understood so don’t need to actually try. Jonathan Nolan, who created the series with Lisa Joy, is Christopher Nolan’s brother. They were suckled on puzzle milk by a mother who didn’t believe in chronology and would speak backwards to the boys only their heads were destroyed.
2. Westworld is based on a film by Michael Crichton, but for some reason in the TV series they took out all the dinosaurs. Probably the budget.
3. There’s a lot of confusion about who is human and who is a robot. And when things are happening. By the end of Season 2 we discover that SPOILER we are the robots and all the robots are human.
4. The cowboys used in the series are actually actors playing robots playing cowboys.
5. Anthony Hopkins, Thandie Newton, Ed Harris and Rachel Evans Wood prepared for their roles by reading the script and rehearsing their scenes.
