If you loved Ready Player One even remotely as much as I did, then I have some very exciting news to report. A sequel to the 2011 bestseller by Ernest Cline is reportedly in the works.
According to SlashFilm.com, which has also been reporting on the Ready Player One movie, author Ernie Cline keeps coming up with more and more ideas for the Ready Player One sequel, as Jermaine Lussier explains:
The news of the Ready Player One sequel comes from the new screenwriter Zak Penn. He said the following to Den of Geek:
Ernie’s working on a sequel to Ready Player One, and it is one of those great ideas that has endless possibilities. And to a certain extent, the longer it exists and the more Ernie thinks about it, the more he comes up with.
Personally, I loved the way the book ended and don’t necessarily agree that it needs a sequel at all, but that absolutely does not mean I’m not interested in reading it. When it’s expected to be released — or when the movie’s expected to be released — is still unclear.
