4 Apr – Only a week after "Ready Player One's" theatrical release, another Ernest Cline novel is going to be made into a feature movie.
"Armada", Cline's second novel, is reportedly being adapted for the big screen by Universal Pictures, with writer Dan Mazeau on board to pen the project. .
Cline and Mazeau are both currently writing a draft for the planned "Armada" movie adaptation and will have Dan Farah, who produced "Ready Player One", and Dylan Clark producing the movie, as reported by Deadline. .
Like "Ready Player One", "Armada" relies heavily on '80s and '90s pop culture nostalgia as it follows Zack Lightman, who plays an online video game about defending against an alien invasion, only to find out that the game is a simulator intended to prepare him and other players for a real alien invasion. .
