Ready Player One (Spielberg / Sheridan / Rylance) (March 30, 2018)

Post by WyldeMan on 2/24/2016, 3:47 pm

In a development that puts him near the top of young actors to watch, Tye Sheridan just won the starring role in the Steven Spielberg-directed adaptation of Ready Player One, which is being made by Warner Bros, Village Roadshow Pictures and DreamWorks. He plays the protagonist Wade, opposite Olivia Cooke and Ben Mendelsohn, who plays Nolan Sorrento.

For Sheridan, it’s the latest in a short career full of landing showy roles and making the most of the opportunity. He made his debut in the 2011 Terrence Malick-directed The Tree Of Life. The Texas-born teen followed starring opposite Matthew McConaughey in the Jeff Nichols-directed Mud, for which he shared the Robert Altman Award at the Independent Spirit Awards. He has several upcoming films that include playing the young Cyclops in the Bryan Singer-directed X-Men: Apocalypse. So we’ll grant him a mulligan for Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse, which he starred in last fall.

Landing Spielberg for Ready Player One was a big coup for Warner Bros and its production chief Greg Silverman. It’s based on the Ernest Cline cult favorite novel, and the film’s being produced Spielberg, De Line Pictures’ Donald De Line, Dan Farah, and Spielberg’s longtime collaborator Kristie Macosko Krieger. Daniel Lupi and Bruce Berman are exec producing. Silverman and Jesse Ehrman are overseeing for Warner Bros.

The film is set in 2045, with the world on the brink of chaos and collapse. But the people have found salvation in the OASIS, an expansive virtual reality universe created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday (Mark Rylance). When Halliday dies, he leaves his immense fortune to the first person to find a digital Easter egg he has hidden somewhere in the OASIS, sparking a contest that grips the entire world. When an unlikely young hero named Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) decides to join the contest, he is hurled into a breakneck, reality-bending treasure hunt through a fantastical universe of mystery, discovery and danger.

I've seen Tye in multiple films over the last several years, I think he's gonna have a big career but this is his first lead role in a blockbuster film unlike his ensemble role in X-Men Apocalypse so it's really gonna be a big test for his career.
