Already counting among its number a healthy-sounding cast, Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One movie has added another recognisable face to its cast in the form of Hannah John-Kamen.
Although not a household name yet, she has made brief appearances in Game Of Thrones and Star Wars: The Force Awakens, as well as playing Dutch in Syfy’s Killjoys. Outside the genre she has also popped up in the likes of The Tunnel, Happy Valley and Cucumber, as well as doing voiceover work for the Dark Souls videogame series.
There’s no word on who she’ll playing in Ready Player One, but it will be yet another impressive addition to her already eye-catching CV. There’s any number of roles she could be earmarked for, and judging by even the ones where she only shows up briefly, it’s more than likely that you won’t forget her.
For those who are unfamiliar with the main plot, the thrust of the narrative sees young protagonist Wade (Tye Sheridan) locating one of the clues within the pop-culture-infused environs of the in-game world, only to immediately find himself beset by rival players, some of who are willing to kill in order to discover OASIS’s secrets – including the sinister suits of Innovative Online Industries, who are seeking to appropriate and regulate it for their own ends.
Morisaki joins a cast that already includes Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, Simon Pegg, Mark Rylance, TJ Miller and Win Morisaki, with Spielberg working from a script put together by Zak Penn and Eric Eason. Donald De Line, Dan Farah and Kristie Macosko Krieger are all attached in producing capacity.
Ready Player One will be released in cinemas on 30 March 2018. You can download Visionaries: Spielberg from GreatDigitalMags.com now. For more news about the biggest movies, pick up the new issue of SciFiNow.
