Sir Anthony Hopkins has become the latest movie star to sign up for a Tv series after joining the cast of a new project inspired by director Michael Crichton's cult 1973 movie Westworld.

Evan Rachel Wood will also star in the project, which will be produced by J.J. Abrams and Jerry Weintraub.

The original film starred Richard Benjamin, James Brolin and Yul Bryner, who portrayed creepy robot cowboy Gunslinger.
