So what if the stars align and we get a sequel for “Ready Player One” (the movie)?! We know that Ernie Cline‘s sequel novel, “Ready Player Two,” is due out in November of 2020, so….wouldn’t a Warner Bros. Pictures followup film make sense?
“Ready Player One” star Tye Sheridan hopes so.
“I’ve had people asking me questions about, you know, a Ready Player Two. You know, ‘Is there going to be sequel?’ And I think everybody’s well aware that Ernie Cline is releasing a Ready Player Two, the novel. You know, but people keep asking me and I would love to have an answer for you and I think people, you know, will and can speculate all they want, but I don’t really know what the plan is yet. I have my fingers crossed and, of course, I think it’s a great and I loved working on that film, so yeah, I hope, I hope we get to do another.”
Us too, Tye, us too.
If you’ll recall, Sheridan played main character Wade Watts, aka Parzival, in Steven Spielberg‘s big budget movie. Zak Penn worked on the script with Cline, and it was wonderful to see a story we love so much given the love and respect of a popular release.
[Maybe ComicBook, who did the interview with Sheridan, can double check that the spelled the author’s name properly in their piece. Just a thought.]
We are EXTREMELY excited to get our hands on “Ready Player Two,” and can’t wait to hear Wil Wheaton‘s narration on the follow-up tale.
