Christopher Nolan might not be the only director in the running for Ready Player One. It’s being reported that Robert Zemeckis, Matthew Vaughn, Edgar Wright and Peter Jackson are all being considered as well. (Looks like you got your wish, Brendan!)
The film is based on Ernest Cline’s award-winning book of the same name. It takes place in the year 2044.
