Jeffrey Wright has joined the ensemble cast of HBO's "Westworld," which is inspired by Michael Crichton's 1973 film of the same name, and is described as a dark tale about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin. 

Anthony Hopkins stars as a Dr. Robert Ford, a brilliant engineer and chairman of the board of Westworld, a futuristic, adult-themed amusement park - who has an uncompromising creative vision for the park and means of realizing that vision. 

Also in the cast are Evan Rachel Wood, Rodrigo Santoro, Shannon Woodward, Ingrid Bolso Berdal, Angela Sarafyan and Simon Quarterman.

Wright will play a character named Bernard Lowe, who is described as a brilliant and quixotic head of the park's programming division, who possesses a keen observation of human nature that inspires his work, which is, creating artificial people.

The new series adaptation will be executive produced by J.J. Abrams, who seemingly has his hands in so much these days, both on the big and small screens. He's a busy guy!

Jonathan Nolan (Christopher Nolan's brother, who also co-wrote a number of Christopher's films, as well as the CBS hit series "Person of Interest") co-wrote the pilot (with Lisa Joy), and will direct as well.

In Crichton's 1973 film, Yul Brynner starred as a malfunctioning robot gunslinger.
