Westworld has been plagued by another delay. Deadline reports production has stopped on season two of the HBO TV show due to an injury.
Based on the 1973 movie, the sci-fi Western is set in a futuristic theme park where visitors pay a lot of money to act out their Wild West fantasies while interacting with lifelike robot “hosts.” The cast includes Jeffrey Wright, Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, Tessa Thompson, Sidse Babett Knudsen, Jimmi Simpson, Rodrigo Santoro, and Shannon Woodward.
In a statement to Deadline, HBO revealed a recurring actor on Westworld suffered an off-set injury and production has been suspended temporarily. This is hardly the first time production has been delayed on Westworld. The series’ first season halted production mid-way for additional script work.
Season two of Westworld is expected to debut on [su_hbo]HBO[/su_hbo] in 2018.
