Westworld Season 4 is indeed moving forward at HBO as production recently had to pause filming this month due to a positive COVID test (House of The Dragon had to pause too). The sci-fi thriller series is based on the Michael Crichton film that was released back in 1973 and landed a sequel in 1976 called Futureworld.
A dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the question of free will, the show was created for television by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, who are also executive producers. Nolan directed the season’s premiere episode, which has surpassed nine million viewers across all platforms.
Last month, Deadline announced actress Aurora Perrineau would be joining the next season.
The Ronin can confirm that cinematographer Paul Cameron will return to shoot an episode for Season 4. Cameron is known for his string of action film credits that include Michael Mann’s Collateral, Tony Scott’s Man On Fire, Len Wiseman’s Total Recall reboot, Swordfish, and Dead Man Down.
Cameron previously worked on Jonathan Nolan-directed episodes of Westworld and could suggest that Nolan will helm this Season 4 one that the cinematographer is involved with.
He also worked on Lisa Joy’s Reminiscence, the feature film directorial debut of the Westworld showrunner that stars Hugh Jackman and Rebecca Ferguson with a theatrical/HBO Max release date of August 20.
REMINISCENCE – Nick Bannister (Jackman), a private investigator of the mind, navigates the darkly alluring world of the past by helping his clients access lost memories. Living on the fringes of the sunken Miami coast, his life is forever changed when he takes on a new client, Mae (Ferguson). A simple matter of lost and found becomes a dangerous obsession. As Bannister fights to find the truth about Mae’s disappearance, he uncovers a violent conspiracy, and must ultimately answer the question: how far would you go to hold on to the ones you love?
