Zak Penn Rewriting Ready Player One for Warner Bros.
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 06.24.2014

The Wrap reports that writer Zak Penn is set to rewrite the script for Ready Player One based on the acclaimed sci-fi novel by Ernie Cline. Donald De Line and Dan Farah are producing the film for Warner Bros.

The story follows a teen named Wade Watts in the future. Watts likes to escape the real world by going into Oasis, a globally-networked virtual world where users lead idyllic lives. The game's eccentric creator dies, he gives up his fortune as a prize in an elaborate treasure hunt. Watts goes against powerful corporate foes and ruthless competitors who will do anything in Oasis and the real world to find the fortune and win control of Oasis.

Warner Bros. acquired the novel in a bidding war in 2010. Village Roadshow will co-finance and co-produce the film.

Cline and Eric Eason previously adapted the film. Penn has reportedly been tasked to get the script to a point where the studio can start going out to directors in the fall. Several filmmakers have apparently already expressed interest in the project.
