By on June 24, 2014

ready-player-one We have been waiting more than four years for the film adaptation of the novel “Ready Player One” to begin production. FINALLY, Warner Bros. and De Line Pictures have begun to move forward according to a report at The Wrap. According to the story, they have hired Zak Penn to adapt the novel written by Ernie Cline. The novel is officially described as follows:

In the near future, outcast teenager Wade Watts escapes from his bleak surroundings by logging in to the OASIS, a globally networked virtual utopia where users can lead idyllic alternate lives. When the eccentric billionaire who created the OASIS dies, he offers up his vast fortune as the prize in an elaborate treasure hunt. Along with gamers from around the world, Wade joins the adventure, and quickly finds himself pitted against powerful corporate foes and other ruthless competitors who will do anything, in the oasis or the real world, to reach the treasure first.

Donald De Line and Dan Farah are set to produce. The adaptation was announced before the novel was even released on shelves.  There is currently no officially word from the studio about a production date or an anticipated release date. No actors are attached at the moment either.
