The Rouge star has boarded the adaptation of the 1973 feature film, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Newton is set to play the part of Maeve Millay, described as a “beautiful and razor-sharp woman with a genius for reading people and a knack for survival. Maeve is the Westworld madame whose seen-it-all-before worldview is about to be truly challenged.”
Production of the series begins later this month. In addition to Newton, Anthony Hopkins, Evan Rachel Wood, Ed Harris, Jeffrey Wright, Rodrigo Marsden and Kyle Bornheimer have boarded the project.
