Steven Spielberg’s ‘Ready Player One’ Slated for 2017 Release

Steven Spielberg’s latest sci-fi pic, “Ready Player One,” has been scheduled for a Dec. 15, 2017, bow.

The Warner Bros., Village Roadshow and DreamWorks release is based on the buzzy Ernest Cline book of the same name. Spielberg, Donald De Line, Dan Farah and Kristie Macosko Krieger will produce, with Bruce Berman serving as exec producer.

“Any film from Steven Spielberg is an event film, so it felt right to date this thrilling new project from one of our greatest filmmakers for the holiday season,” said Dan Fellman, Warner Bros.’ president of domestic distribution, in a release.

Cline’s novel, published in 2011, follows the rise of virtual reality universe the Oasis, which humans living in the not-too-distant future begin to value above the real world. Zak Penn adapted the story for the screen.

Spielberg’s latest pic, Tom Hanks starrer “Bridge of Spies,” bows in October.
