Ernie Cline, author of the book Player #1, is about to release a sequel to the work, which hit theaters in 2018, by Steven Spielberg. And Tye Sheridan, the film’s protagonist, said he would like to return to the role, if Warner Bros. decide to adapt the new book as well.
“Recently, some people asked me about a Ready Player Two”, Sheridan told the comicbook. “You know, ‘Will there be a sequel?’ And I think everyone is well aware that Ernie Cline is releasing Ready Player Two. But people keep asking me and I would love to have an answer for you, but I still don’t know what the plan is. I have my fingers crossed and of course I think it’s great and I loved working on that movie so yeah, I hope we can do another one.”
Sheridan is currently involved with the release of Wireless, new episodic film by Quibi, which puts the actor in the role of a man who has a car accident and is stuck on a deserted road and will need to use a cell phone with almost no battery, to manage to escape with his life. The actor commented on the differences of working on a project made for a smartphone, with a large production directed by Spielberg.
“This was a very technically challenging film,” explained Sheridan. “Working at Player #1, which is a Steven Spielberg movie, was cool because we were pushing the boundaries of making motion-capture movies at the time. And since then there have been a lot of innovations in technology, but this was on a large scale and Wireless is specifically designed to be viewed on mobile. And that’s why it’s a completely different production. They’re both really cool and they’re both alike in that respect, but of course the scales are very different.”
