Saw your fave book was ready player one so I came to ask how you feel about its upcoming film adaptation? and what do you think about tye sheridan as parzival hehe
I was excited about the movie since the day I found out Ernie had sold the script even before finishing the book. It wasn’t a big suprise for me to then see that Steven Spielberg himself will direct it. Of course i’m still a little worried about how the adaptation will do, especially knowing that it may not be posible to get all the licences for certain titles of films, games, music, etc. Pop references are everyone in the original story and I will be sad if it has to be cut down a little for the copy right thing. But I also accept it if that’s the case.
Another thing, that may sound stupid, that worries me a little is fandom reaction. The story is really good, characters are lovable and i’m not ready for a boom. I’m sure lots of people will like the movie and read the book, lots of people that already read the book are waiting for this movie. What i’m trying to say is that I’m not sure if I’m ready for a big fandom around the story after so many years being this like little club. But i’m sure it will be fun too, so we’ll see.
Finally, let’s talk about Tye Sheridan.
I saw him for the first time in the movie ‘The tree of life’, then in ‘Mud’ and I think his acting is amazing. When I saw him as Cyclops in ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’, I didn’t know what to think because I feel like the character can do more and I thought, this the CGI thing that will tell me if he can do Wade good. I don’t care about his looks and so, Wade has never been described as ‘handsome’, but I care about how they will play with his weight. My guess is that there will be some computer playing with it, let’s see how it will look. Now, I don’t know what you think, but I’ve been keeping an eye on him since he was announced as Wade and I really want to believe he will do it good. His acting capacity is great to me, I hope other fans can see that too.
Thanks for your questions! What about you?
