‘Ready Player One’: Spielberg Wants Your Avatar in His Movie

Ready Player One, Amblin Entertainment

One movie that I have waited for some time to see footage from is Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of the Ernest Cline novel Ready Player One. The book is one of my favorites, and the film begins filming this summer! Spielberg has asked for your help, he needs your avatars to inhabit the virtual space called OASIS in Ready Player One. You heard me right, Steven Spielberg is taking submissions to hire your 3D avatar for the film.

The contest starts today and runs all the way until June 23. You can check out all the rules and regulations at this link right here. If you want some more information, check out the video below:

The film follows a boy as he embarks on a massive scavenger hunt worth a fortune. The film will take place in the real world and in a virtual world, and this is the exact reason Spielberg needs your help. This is a great opportunity to appear in a film, because in the novel there are thousands of avatars in OASIS. Sign yourself up, I already have.

Also, here is the official synopsis for the film, courtesy of Warner Bros.:

From Steven Spielberg comes the action adventure READY PLAYER ONE, the much-anticipated big-screen adaptation of the groundbreaking bestseller by Ernest Cline.

In the year 2044, reality is an ugly place. The only time teenage Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) really feels alive is when he’s jacked into the virtual utopia know as the OASIS. Wade’s devoted his life to studying the puzzles hidden within the confines of this digital world, puzzles that are based on their creator’s obsession with the pop culture of decades past and that promise massive power and fortune to whoever can unlock them. But when Wade stumbles upon the first clue, he finds himself beset by players willing to kill to take this ultimate prize. The race is on, and if Wade’s going to survive, he’ll have to win – and confront the real world he’s been so desperate to escape.

READY PLAYER ONE is being directed by Steven Spielberg, who is also producing the film with Donald De Line, Kristie Macosko Krieger and Dan Farah. The film stars Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn with Simon Pegg and Mark Rylance.
