A film adaptation of Ready Player Two is in the early stage of development, according to Ernest Cline. His original novel fueled with nostalgia was released in the year 2011, and it caught the attention of Steven Spielberg soon.
Spielberg did set his sites on directing a big-screen adaptation of Ready Player One, and it finally hit the theaters in the year 2018. The movie received moderately positive reviews, but it did became a box office success for Warner Bros, making over $580 million worldwide.
The popularity of Ready Player One finally came while Cline was in the middle of writing the sequel novel, which was announced in the year 2015. This made the possibility of a film adaptation of the upcoming installment quite likely.
The sequel has now been officially released, and as the readers begin to dive into the next chapter of the story of Wade Watts, many are already wondering what the future could hold for a movie.
Cline is presently doing press for the release of the sequel, which means addressing the book’s status becoming the inspiration for a sequel movie.
Ready Player Two Film In Early Development, Sources
During an interview with Inverse, Cline made a confirmation that the development of the sequel is underway on the sequel. It is in the early stages of development right now, and it has yet to be announced by the studio.
But Cline really seems to believe that most of the original team will return after having a good experience making the first film.
The plot of Ready Player Two picks up very shortly after the events of the very first book/movie. Wade learns of a brand new secret invention from James Halliday, the OASIS creator.
The Oasis Neural Interface allows the users to experience the OASIS with all their five senses and record real-life experiences.
The popularity of ONI leads to a brand new riddle that is planted in the OASIS by Halliday to make an appearance, sending Wade on a quest to recover the Seven Shards of the Siren’s Soul.
Even though WB has yet to announce a movie officially, Cline would be in the knowledge if an adaptation of his novel is coming.
