If you have been following my blog for a while you might remember that I mentioned there was a film of Ready Player One in the process of being made, well, now it has a release date.
Director Steven Spielberg announced yesterday that the film adaptation of Ernest Cline’s best selling novel has been scheduled for release on December 15 2017. The date is pretty far off and there has been no word on the casting choices yet but now we know it is officially being made.
Ready Player One is set in the not too far off future of 2044, where the world has turned into a futuristic version of the 1980’s. The novel follows the teenage gamer Wade Watts as he works his way through the virtual online world known as OASIS that promises fame and fortune to whoever completes the hidden puzzles in the game. When Wade solves the first of the hidden puzzles in the game, he find himself set upon by other gamers who are willing to kill to claim the ultimate prize.
