Ready Player One Set Photos Show a Grungy Dystopia

Those looking forward to Steven Spielberg’s upcoming big screen adaptation of Ernest Cline’s best-seller Ready Player One are getting a treat today as we get a first look at location shooting in Birmingham, England (via I Choose Birmingham). As you can see, production designer Adam Stockhausen‘s sets boast a grungy dystopian look that’s somewhere between Mike Judge’s Idiocracy and Terry Gilliam’s The Zero Theorem. Check out the Ready Player One set photos along with two set videos below!

The Ready Player One movie cast includes Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cook, Mark Rylance, Simon Pegg, TJ Miller and Ben Mendelsohn.

Set in the near future, Ready Player One follows outcast teenager Wade Watts (Sheridan), who escapes from his bleak surroundings by logging in to the OASIS, a globally networked virtual utopia where users can lead idyllic alternate lives. When eccentric billionaire who created the OASIS dies, he offers up his vast fortune as the prize in an elaborate treasure hunt. Along with gamers from around the world, Wade joins the adventure, and quickly finds himself pitted against powerful corporate foes and other ruthless competitors who will do anything, in the oasis or the real world, to reach the treasure first.

A Warner Bros. Pictures, Village Roadshow Pictures and DreamWorks Pictures production, the Ready Player One movie is being directed by Spielberg, who is also producing alongside Donald De Line, under his De Line Pictures banner, Dan Farah and Kristie Macosko Krieger. Bruce Berman will serve as executive producer.

Look for the Ready Player One movie to hit the big screen March 30, 2018.
