Last week, Ready Player One fans got a big surprise: Steven Spielberg will direct the film adaption of the bestselling novel and sci-fi favorite by Ernest Cline!
“Willy Wonka meets the Matrix” (USA Today), Ready Player One is part virtual space opera, part classic coming-of-age story–and part brilliant pop-culture mashup. With Warner Brothers backing the movie, Spielberg’s direction, and a script penned by Cline, Zak Penn (X-Men: The Last Stand, The Avengers), and Eric Eason (A Better Life), the film adaption is sure to be as big a hit as the book.
This announcement comes just four months prior to the publication date of Cline’s follow-up novel Armada, a rollicking, surprising thriller, a classic coming of age adventure, and an alien-invasion tale like nothing you’ve ever read before. Infused with Cline’s trademark pop-culture savvy, this cinematic, heartwarming, and completely nerdtastic adventure will appeal to fans and new readers alike.
