    Tye Sheridan to Lead Steven Speilberg's 'Ready Player One'

    We've been waiting a while for this news, but we finally have word on who will be playing Wade Watts in Steven Speilberg's adaption of Ernest Cline's Ready Player One:

    Tye Sheridan.

    The young actor who has done great work in such films as Tree of Life and Mud, will lead the cast which also includes Olivia Cooke (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl) as Samantha Cook/Art3mis and Ben Mendelsohn (Killing Them Softly) as Nolan Sorrento.

    Sheridan's role as Wade Wilson is also that of Parzival, the name of his avatar in the virtual world of OASIS.

    Warner Bros. recently moved the release date of Ready Player One to March 30th, 2018 after Disney shifted Star Wars: Episode VIII to its original December 15, 2017 slot.

    Read the full synopsis for Ready Player One below:

    [via Amazon]:

    In the year 2044, reality is an ugly place. The only time teenage Wade Watts really feels alive is when he's jacked into the virtual utopia known as the OASIS. Wade's devoted his life to studying the puzzles hidden within this world's digital confines—puzzles that are based on their creator's obsession with the pop culture of decades past and that promise massive power and fortune to whoever can unlock them. 
    But when Wade stumbles upon the first clue, he finds himself beset by players willing to kill to take this ultimate prize. The race is on, and if Wade's going to survive, he'll have to win—and confront the real world he's always been so desperate to escape.
