Ready Player One Sequel Being Developed By Author

Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One gets thrill-tastic new trailer

Cline declined to reveal details about the sequel.

The storyline takes place in a futuristic dystopian seemingly industrial world in Columbus, Ohio in 2045.

"Ready Player One" stars Tye Sheridan ("X-Men: Apocalypse", "Mud"), Olivia Cooke ("Me and Earl and the Dying Girl", "Bates Motel"), Ben Mendelsohn ("Rogue One - A Star Wars Story", "Bloodline") and T.J. Miller ("Deadpool", "Silicon Valley"), with Simon Pegg (the "Star Trek" movies, the "Mission: Impossible" movies) and Oscar victor Mark Rylance ("Bridge of Spies", upcoming "Dunkirk").

Created by James Halliday, the OASIS allows for the creation of literally any world someone could want, including Middle-earth, Mid-World, planets from Star Wars, Star Trek, and Doctor Who, and even classic Dungeons & Dragons modules. The universal platform for virtual reality is called the Oasis, and following the death of its creator, the Oasis and several hundred boatloads of money are up for grabs by way of a contest set up by the late founder.
