Af­ter pre­vi­ously ru­moured to have been of­fered to Christo­pher Nolan (see TTC #408), Ready Player One will now be helmed by Steven Spiel­berg. The adap­ta­tion of Ernest Cline’s best­selling YA novel is go­ing to be a joint ven­ture be­tween Vil­lage Road­show, Dream Works and Warners and will be scripted by Zak Penn. Ex­pect it to hit cin­e­mas on De­cem­ber 15th, 2017.

+++ Af­ter last month’s news of J. K. Sim­mons and Michael Keaton jump­ing ship on Kong: Skull Is­land, it ap­pears Sa­muel L. Jackson, John C. Reilly and Tom Wilkin­son may well be tak­ing the jour­ney to the land of the gi­ant ape. With the re­lease date still set for March 10th, 2017, they bet­ter stop mon­key­ing around.

+++ Game of Thrones have ex­panded their cast even fur­ther (well they have to since they keep killing them off) with the ad­di­tion of Max Von Sy­dow, who will play Bran Stark’s mys­ti­cal men­tor the Three Eyed Raven, and Love­joy him­self Ian McShane, who will take a small, cur­rently un­known, but key role when the show re­turns for its sixth sea­son in the first half of next year. Mean­while, HBO Pro­gram­ming Pres­i­dent, Michael Lom­bardo, im­plied that there will be at least

another two sea­sons in Wes­teros fol­low­ing this up­com­ing one.
