Ready Player One: Cast of Spielberg’s Sci-Fi Film

Simon Pegg joins the cast of Steven Spielberg’s sci-fi film Ready Player One.

Warner and Village Roadshow are behind the movie, which adapts the best-selling sci-fi novel by Ernest Cline, as it heads towards a June start.

Tye Sheridan leads a cast that includes Olivia Cooke and Ben Mendelsohn in the story set in a virtual world called Oasis, in which a teenager (Sheridan) finds himself competing in a treasure hunt against ruthless foes after the game’s founder dies and offers his fortune as the grand prize.

Pegg will play Orgen Morrow, the co-creator of Oasis.

Ready Player One is being produced by Spielberg via his Amblin Partners banner, along with Donald De Line, Kristie Macosko Krieger and Dan Farah.
