HBO’s upcoming sci-fi pilot Westworld is finally starting to shape up as new names are announced to join the J.J. Abrams executive produced project.

Following the news that Anthony Hopkins and Evan Rachel Wood are set to star, it has been revealed that THE HUNGER GAMES’ Jeffrey Wright, Raising Hope’s Shannon Woodward and Lost’s Rodrigo Santoro have all signed up to the Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy created project. Ingrid Bolso Berdal, Angela Sarafyan and Simon Quarterman will also be joining the cast.

Drawing inspiration from the 1973 movie of the same name by Michael Crichton, Westworld tells the story of a robot malfunction that causes the star attractions to turn against unsuspecting visitors at a futuristic theme park. Hopkins will play Dr. Robert Ford, the mastermind behind the theme park while Wood plays a sweet farm girl named Dolores Abernathy.

Is it too early to call this as a one to watch? It’s shaping up to be! Let us know what you think.
