Ready Player Two, the sequel to the 2018 Steven Spielberg-directed sci-fi adventure, is currently in the works.

The screenplay is being adapted by Ernest Cline, author of the original novel Ready Player One, who was also responsible for the first film. According to Cline, the sequel will take place just nine days after protagonist Wade Watts wins James Halliday’s hunt, a scavenger hunt awarding its winner ownership to a virtual game called OASIS that most of the world is invested in: Watts takes control over OASIS and becomes the richest man in the world. If the upcoming movie sequel follows the story of the second book, Wade will discover a new technology invented by Halliday that allows him to experience all senses in the virtual world.

“I can tell from the experience of making the first movie that everybody had a lot of fun,” mentioned Cline when speaking about the sequel. “I really tried my best to focus on just writing a sequel to my book. There are characters in the movie that are alive that aren’t alive in the book. I focused on trying to give fans the book without letting the film influence me. The movie will sort itself out later.” Cline hasn’t yet mentioned who will be directing the upcoming sequel or if the original cast members will be coming back, but sources have suggested Spielberg’s return as the director would be unlikely.

So far, further details of Ready Player Two remain scarce as the movie is still in its early stages of development.

In case you missed it, here’s everything coming to Disney+ this month.
