“Ready Player One” directed by Steven Spielberg!

Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One, which I reviewed several months ago, is being made into a film. The novel is an extremely fun tribute to 1980s pop culture. Thus, it’s fitting that, according to Deadline, Steven Spielberg is set to direct. Spielberg of course was the driving force behind so many 80s classics, directing E.T. and Indiana Jones, and producing Back to the Future IIThe Goonies, and Gremlins, among many others. Cline actually references several of those movies in Ready Player One, so it’ll be interesting to see to what extent Spielberg uses this film adaptation to reflect back on his own work.

About Dom

I study constitutional politics in Southeast Asia and I occasionally work as a consultant for rule of law projects. I enjoy science fiction and fantasy stories, both as an escape and as a way to better understand our world. One day, I hope to write a book about politics in genre literature.
