Steven Spielberg does Ready Player One

So it has been announced that Steven Spielberg is to direct Ready Player One and here at YA Love, we couldn't be more excited. The adaptation of Ernest Cline's sci-fi gamer hit novel has been taken on by Warner Bros, who also haven't had Spielberg direct their films for 14 years. For us, Spielberg is an obvious choice for the adaptation, not only because his auteur style would be a perfect fit for the storyline, but also because Spielberg and his films are actually referenced within the book. As the book takes place in 2044, we're interested to see how this futuristic gamer world will be translated to the big screen.
