Billy Ray Heads for "Westworld"



"Breach" writer Billy Ray has informed SciFi.com that he has come onboard to pen for Warner Bros. Pictures' remake of 1973 sci-fi classic "Westworld."

Progress does run smooth on "Westworld" as "Breach" scribe Billy Ray has openly admitted that he is on works to pen the screenplay for the project, set up by Warner Bros. Pictures in association with Jerry Weintraub Productions.

Revealing the tidbit to SciFi.com, the man, however, claimed that no director is attached yet and that he will not take the position in the flick though offers have actually been made to him.

"...I don't want the pressure of that kind of a budget sitting on my shoulders," so he remarked.

A sci-fi feature, "Westworld" is a remake of the 1973 classic centering on a futuristic theme park staffed by robots that breaks down and puts its two guests in the battle against a gun-slinging android. The original was followed by a sequel, "Futureworld", in 1976, and a short-lived sequel television series, "Beyond Westworld", in 1980.
