Prepared Participant One creator Ernest Cline is a giant fan of references to ‘80s popular culture, but it surely seems that he’s additionally a giant fan of placing whereas the iron is sizzling—or regardless of the ‘80s reference equal of that previous saying is. That’s primarily based on the truth that Cline has now introduced that he’s engaged on a sequel to Prepared Participant One, an announcement that’s solely shocking due to how unsurprising it’s (the e-book was highly regarded, in spite of everything). Cline really shared this information as a part of the identical Fb Dwell occasion wherein he debuted the brand new trailer for Steven Spielberg’s Prepared Participant One film, guaranteeing that we’d all have much more Prepared Participant One stuff to speak about past tallying all the bizarre cameos Spielberg packed into the clip.
He didn’t expose any particulars concerning the sequel, together with its title or which Matthew Broderick film its principal character must recite, however he did say that “there’s no higher inspiration for a author” than going again to a world they created and seeing Steven Spielberg “deliver that world to life.” Actually, Cline says he even bounced some concepts off of Spielberg, however that’s about all we all know.
