Hannah John-Kamen joins Ready Player One

Hannah John-Kamen has been enjoying a healthy couple of years, with roles in projects such as Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015), the latest season of Game Of Thrones and The Tunnel. Now news arrives via Deadline that she has scored a part in another big movie, with Steven Spielberg (Bridge Of Spies) casting her in Ready Player One.

Adapted from Ernest Cline's book, Ready Player One is set in a world where millions across the planet interact in a virtual space known as Oasis, in which you can be anything you want to be. For Teenager Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan), it is a way to escape his tough life, inside Oasis he uses the avatar Parzival. When the original co-creator of Oasis James Donovan Halliday (Mark Rylance) dies, the Steve Jobs style billionaire offers his fortune and control of Oasis to anyone who can complete an elaborate treasure hunt. Wade naturally starts questing, joined by fellow player Samantha Cook, also known as Art3mis (Olivia Cooke) and threatened by the corporate types looking to ensure they take control. They are represented by the nefarious Nolan Sorrento, played by Ben Mendelsohn (Killing Them Softly). Also aboard is Simon Pegg (Star Trek Into Darkness) as Ogden "Og" Morrow, Halliday's former colleague and one of the other brains behind Oasis. There is no word on which character John-Kamen will play just yet.

Ready Player One recently kicked off shooting ready for a 30 March 2018 release. As for the actress, she will be back on screens in science fiction bounty hunter show Killjoys.
