HOLLYWOOD REPORTERWarner Bros. and Village Roadshow are behind the movie, which adapts the best-selling sci-fi novel by Ernie Cline.

Olivia Cooke, who starred in Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, has nabbed the female lead in Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One and is in negotiations.

Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow are behind the movie, which adapts the best-selling sci-fi novel by Ernie Cline, and is in the thick of searching for its stars.

The story is set in a virtual world called Oasis, in which a teenager finds himself competing in a treasure hunt against ruthless foes after the game’s founder dies and offers his fortune as the grand prize.

Spielberg has been reading actors in Los Angeles and New York with the hope of finding both the male and female leads at the same time. That hasn’t happened and the hunt for the male continues, though Cooke rose to the top after tests that included Elle Fanning and Lola Kirke (Mozart in the Jungle, Gone Girl).

If a deal is made, Cooke would play the teen’s love interest and competitor, a Canadian blogger named Sam whose name in the virtual world is Art3mis.

Warners had no comment, and calls to Cooke’s representatives, Gersh and Luber Roklin Entertainment, were not immediately returned.

Spielberg is producing with Donald De Line, Kristie Macosko Krieger and Dan Farah.

The role is major breakthrough for Cooke, a rising talent who’s been working mostly in the indie world, while also appearing on A&E’s Bates Motel. She received a big career boost with Dying Girl, the indie that won the Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year and was picked up Fox Searchlight.

While the movie wasn’t the hit the studio hoped for, it lifted Cooke’s profile as one of the key actresses of the new generation. Not only did it put her into contention for Spielberg’s latest tentpole, but her name has surfaced as being on the shortlist for one of the Star Wars movies.

Her stories make you laugh and her rooted-in-reality performances make you cry. Meet Oldham’s finest, actress of the moment Olivia Cooke…

ASOS – When it comes to choosing film roles, actress Olivia Cooke has two rules. 1) ‘Would I actually want to watch this?’ 2) ‘Is this a well thought out character?’ Answer no to either and Olivia’s out. ‘I don’t want to be hanging out alone while the boys get all the cool stunts,’ she explains. ‘I’d go crazy. I need a challenge.’

This year, many women have echoed her manifesto with Rose McGowan calling out sexism in auditions, Patricia Arquette’s Oscar speech rallying for equal pay for women and Emma Thompson mocking ‘roles that involve saying to a man, “Please don’t go and do that brave thing. Don’t! No, no, no!”’
The difference is, Olivia is 21. She isn’t a household name and she hasn’t experienced decades of inequality, but what she’s saying, in her Oldham accent and through a butter-wouldn’t-melt smile, is “Don’t mess with me.”

SCREENCRUSH – In addition to being on the shortlist for a leading role in Star Wars: Episode 8, rising star Olivia Cooke is also on a shortlist for another major upcoming film: Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of Ernest Cline’s nostalgia-driven novel Ready Player One. Cooke is currently in contention for the role along with Elle Fanning and Mistress America newcomer Lola Kirke.

Kind of a big day for shortlists, as The Wrap reports that the three actresses are in the running to play the leading role in Ready Player One. Cooke is best known for her roles in Bates Motel and Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, while Kirke recently broke out with a leading role in Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig’s Mistress America. Fanning, meanwhile, has a ton of upcoming projects, including the transgender teen drama About Ray, Nicolas Winding Refn’s The Neon Demon, and Ben Affleck’s Live by Night.

Ready Player One takes place in the year 2044, when the creator of a virtual utopia known as OASIS dies and bequeaths his empire to whichever player can successfully complete a treasure hunt. The novel is built entirely on nostalgia and pop culture references — particularly video game references — making it a bit of a tricky adaptation given the various licensing hurdles involved.

It also doesn’t seem like the sort of movie that would attract Spielberg, as it’s the kind of movie that would be directed by someone trying to ape Spielberg’s work. It’s a bit surprising that the director has yet to back out of the project, but with the casting process already begun it appears that Spielberg is still very committed.

THE WRAP – Rian Johnson is directing the sci-fi sequel, which Disney and Lucasfilm will release on May 26, 2017
Golden Globe winner Gina Rodriguez (“Jane the Virgin”), Golden Globe nominee Tatiana Maslany (“Orphan Black”) and “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl” star Olivia Cooke are considered the top contenders for the new female lead in Rian Johnson‘s “Star Wars: Episode VIII,” multiple individuals familiar with the casting situation told TheWrap.
Insiders insist it’s early in the casting process and that Johnson is still auditioning actresses, with several rising stars yet to read for him. Others suggest that Johnson is narrowing down the field and that Rodriguez, Maslany and Cooke will be among a group of girls slated to chemistry-read with “The Force Awakens” star John Boyega before the end of the month.
A representative for Disney declined to comment. The studio will release the sci-fi sequel on May 26, 2017. Ram Bergman is producing the film with Lucasfilm’s Kathy Kennedy, and production is expected to start early next year.

Oscar winner Benicio del Toro is nearing a deal to play the villain in “Star Wars: Episode VIII,” for which plot details remain unknown. However, the Internet has taken it upon itself to speculate that Han Solo’s daughter could be introduced in the film.
Rodriguez starred in the acclaimed indie drama “Filly Brown” before landing the title role on the CW’s “Jane the Virgin,” for which she won a Golden Globe. She has demonstrated she can play a strong female lead, and she next stars opposite Mark Wahlberg and Dylan O’Brien in Peter Berg‘s action drama “Deepwater Horizon.”
Maslany was a finalist for the lead role in “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” though the coveted part ultimately went to Felicity Jones. Still, Maslany must’ve made a strong impression on Disney and Lucasfilm executives to be back in the mix for “Episode VIII.” In addition to playing multiple characters on “Orphan Black,” Maslany recently played the younger version of Helen Mirren‘s character in “Woman in Black” and wrapped the indie movie “Two Lovers and a Bear” with Dane DeHaan.
Cooke stars on “Bates Motel” and drew widespread acclaim for her impressive performance as a young cancer patient in “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl,” which won both the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award at Sundance. She has been in demand ever since, and is in the mix for the female lead in Steven Spielberg‘s “Ready Player One.” She’ll continue to showcase her range as a teenage prostitute in the indie drama “Katie Says Goodbye.”
