Screenwriter Zak Penn has signed on to rewrite Warner Bros.' video game thriller Ready Player One, four years after the studio first acquired the rights to the novel of the same name by Ernest Cline (Fanboys) in a bidding war.
The story centers on a young teenager named Wade Watts, who escapes into an immersive online virtual world known as Oasis, described as a "social networking utopia that allows its users to lead their dream life." Before the game's creator passes away, he sets up an elaborate treasure hunt where the winner will take control of his company. When Wade enters the contest, he finds himself competing against corporate forces who will stop at nothing to control the company. Donald De Line and Dan Farah are producing.
