First official look at Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One

'Ready Player One': First Image Reveals Tye Sheridan's Protagonist and Easter Eggs

It's been some time since we heard any news about Steven Spielberg's upcoming adaptation of Ready Player One, Ernest Cline's 2012 bestseller about virtual reality and video games.

The photo gives us a good look at Wade's OASIS rig, and if you look hard in the corner, you can spot the bike Wade pedals to charge up his gear. Watts gets in on the action then after five years finds himself facing off against corporate foes who will go to any lengths to get the money - in both the real world and in The Oasis. Whoever solves the series of pop-culture quests will win the OASIS and its parent company Gregarious Games.

A Warner Bros. Pictures, Village Roadshow Pictures and DreamWorks Pictures production, the Ready Player One movie is being directed by Spielberg, who is also producing alongside Donald De Line, under his De Line Pictures banner, Dan Farah and Kristie Macosko Krieger.

Wershe's controversial case has garnered national attention over the years and included years of legal wrangling. While he was behind bars in Florida, he got involved in helping his sister in MI buy stolen cars.

Our hero, Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan, who played Cyclops in X-Men: Apocalypse), is an orphan who lives with his aunt in the "stacks" - literal towers of trailer homes.

However, Spielberg won't include references to his own work in the movie (aside from the time-traveling Delorean from Back to the Future, which he executive produced). If you look closely you'll see Garfield, a Star Trek lunchbox, and the Garbage Pail Kids.

Ready Player One also stars Olivia Cook, Mark Rylance, Simon Pegg, Ben Mendelsohn, Lena Waithe and TJ Miller.
