Westworld

The late Michael Crichton wrote and directed the 1973 sci-fi thriller about a theme park where rich visitors can live out fantasies like engaging in Old West gunfights, thanks to the park's androids, such as the menacing robot cowboy memorably portrayed by Yul Brynner. Just like in his "Jurassic Park," though, you know things are going to go badly for the smug and boozy tourists. Crichton had worked recently on a script for a remake (and, at one point, Quentin Tarantino was approached to direct) but the author's death in November may mark the end of the reboot effort.
