On Friday, screenwriter Zak Penn (X-Men: The Last Stand, The Incredible Hulk), who rewrote Ernie Cline’s Ready Player One screenplay (based on Cline’s best-selling sci-fi novel of the same name), revealed that the first week of filming on the Steven Spielberg-directed movie has been completed.

“First week of #ReadyPlayerOne finished,” Penn posted on Twitter. “Surreal. It went to 11. Thanks for writing your book @erniecline and the assist in Oology” The post was met with an enthusiastic reply from Cline, who tweeted, “My pleasure, Zak! So insanely excited for my set visit!”

The cast features Tye Sheridan as Wade Watts, Olivia Cooke as Art3mis, Simon Pegg as Orgen Morrow, Ben Mendelsohn as Nolan Sorento, T.J. Miller as i-R0k, Win Morisaki as Daito, and Mark Rylance as James Donovan Halliday.

The story of a virtual-reality game creator who offers up his entire company to the best player who can find an Easter egg in one of his many virtual worlds via a game called OASIS. A teenager named Wade Watts decides to take it on after millions have failed over many years. The key to winning the game is a plethora of pop culture clues from the 1980s. Whomever figures it out and wins the game — without having their avatars killed in the process — takes over the entire OASIS empire.

Three-time Academy Award winner Steven Spielberg (“Schindler’s List,” “Saving Private Ryan”) is directing Ready Player One. The film is being produced by Spielberg; Donald De Line, under his De Line Pictures banner; Dan Farah; and Spielberg’s longtime colleague Kristie Macosko Krieger; with Bruce Berman serving as executive producer.

“Me and Earl and the Dying Girl” star Olivia Cooke has signed with CAA.

Cooke’s breakout role came last year with the Sundance film “Me and Earl,” which follows two friends who connect with a girl dying of cancer, while make a film revolving around her life. The movie went on to win the festival’s grand jury and audience awards, and quickly turned Cooke into one of Hollywood’s hottest new stars.

After testing dozens of young actors and actresses, Cooke was tapped to star in Steven Spielberg’s “Ready Player One,” which begins filming this fall and also stars Tye Sheridan and Ben Mendelsohn.

She is currently shooting the indie “Thoroughbred” opposite Anya Taylor-Joy. She will next be seen in “Katie Says Goodbye,” in which she plays the title character, and “The Limehouse Golem” with Bill Nighy.

She is managed by Josh Glick of Grandview and by Christina Shepherd of Shepherd Management in the U.K. Her attorney is Gretchen Rush of Hansen Jacobson Teller Hoberman Newman Warren Richman Rush and Kaller.

Twenty-year-old Olivia Cooke has just been cast in Steven Spielberg’s next film, Ready Player One, despite “self-sabotaging” her audition. “He’s really lovely,” the Mancunian gushes, clearly relieved. Filming won’t start for quite some time, but the announcement is placed prominently on her IMDb page, which the very private Cooke finds odd. She “can’t be bothered” with Twitter or Instagram, she says. “The thing with social media these days is you can’t really say what you want. It’s always going to be judged or backfire. I don’t want to be a spokeswoman unless I’ve really got something worthwhile and important to say. Otherwise, it’s just pictures of, I don’t know, fucking lakes and beaches. It’s like a mum showing pictures of her child.”

Technically, and sort of ironically, her breakout role was a nonspeaking part. In a video, filmed to be played behind a One Direction tour, Cooke can be seen gallivanting in a field with the boy band. “That was just half a day of my life when I was 17,” she sighs. “It was 250 quid. They’d only just come out of The X-Factor so they weren’t even known at all. It’s a bit embarrassing that that was, like, the start of my career.”

Next came “screaming at nothing, CGI-ed ghosts” and suffering on-screen illnesses in an array of American and British accents (but never her own rounded northern intonation). She gasps and cries in The Quiet Ones, Blackout, The Signal, Ouija, the forthcoming Limehouse Golem, and in an ongoing role in the TV prequel to the horror film of all horror films, Bates Motel. Here, Cooke’s character is not only dangerously close to the young Norman Bates, slowly discovering his psychotic tendencies, but she often needs a respirator for shortness of breath due to cystic fibrosis.

Arguably, Cooke’s real breakout wasn’t until this year, when she played Rachel, a teen with leukemia, in Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, based on the popular Jesse Andrews novel. The screenplay, also written by Andrews, intentionally waffles between sentimentality and distraction through its referencing of classic independent film. The clever format is telling of its characters’ hyper-researched generation and also of the way anyone, young or old, handles tragic loss. Devoted to the role, Cooke opted to shave her head halfway through filming instead of wearing a skullcap for when her character undergoes chemotherapy. (The studio promised to pay for the $10,000 wig she’d need for continuity in Bates Motel, Cooke confides.) Authenticity has no price. “[Rachel]’s a totally real-life character,” says Cooke. “You don’t want her to just be another Manic Pixie Dream Girl that just comes in and changes this guy’s life and then edges away slowly, saying all these really profound things in her last moments of life. She’s human, completely human.”

For her starring role in the forthcoming Katie Says Goodbye, the freedom that came from what she calls “bare-bones drama” (meaning no horror or illness to muddy a character’s emotional distress) completely changed Cooke’s way of thinking. Katie, a small-town Arizona diner waitress, prostitutes herself after hours.

“She wouldn’t call herself a prostitute, though,” Cooke corrects. “Sex isn’t a taboo subject for her. She sees this as a simple transaction—she makes these guys happy and she gets paid for it. I don’t want to go on the bandwagon of how women are perceived in films, but it was so freeing for me to be liberated of any inhibitions, any embarrassment.”

Without having seen a cut of the film, she’s ready to defend its depiction of sexuality, if only for the sake of variety. “You never really see a woman being pleasured in film,” she says. “You see a woman getting raped or beaten, or seen as the jailbait, or she’s the old hag, but you’ll never see a woman in control of all of her sex. It’s a weird thing in America when you’ll see someone’s head being blown off more than you’ll see someone having a loving, intimate sex scene—which actually happens all the time. Rarely does someone’s head get blown off.”

“I just got off of this big press tour for Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, which was insane. It was a plane journey every single day and it just knackered me because we were going from city to city in America—we’d be in Chicago for 20 hours and then we’d be rushed off to go to Austin. It was just this weird cycle where you’d wake up and not know what city you were in. Hotel to hotel to radio station. It was hard, but it was exciting—after that tour is done, we’re off to do it in Europe.

When they were auditioning actresses for the movie, it was never said that the actress would have to shave her head—it was like ‘Oh no, you know, wear a bald cap, it’ll be fine.’ But then two weeks before filming, going into production, I sent the director a really panicked email saying bald caps look awful even if you use the best makeup artist and hairstylist in the world. I’ve got so much hair and it’s going to look so bulbous…it’s going to take everyone out of the movie and I don’t want anything that I’m doing to tamper with the honesty of the script. So we shaved my head, and it was the best thing I ever did for the role and for the performance. There’s a scene in the movie when I tell the main character that I just feel so ugly and repulsive and we had just shaved my head the night before—it felt very real. Rubbing your head for the first time and feeling a bald scalp is just…I’ve never experienced anything like it. I didn’t realize how much I needed my hair in order to make myself feel beautiful—it should have just come from me. Also, I think my people skills developed a lot because of the shave. When a woman with a buzz cut comes up to you, you have to start a conversation with her. It was kind of fun breaking that barrier with people.

When I got here for the tour, my eczema was just raging. Now it’s not too bad but I really had to focus on what products I was using. I only wash my face with a blemish controlling face wash and a toner and a moisturizer at night. Then in the morning I just rinse my face in the shower and leave it because I think, for me, less is more. But this morning—because I knew I was going to get pictures taken—I put on this Laura Mercier Caviar Stick that I just smudged on my eyes with a brush and made it into more of a flick. Then I have black Dior mascara on my top lashes and brown eyeliner. I don’t really like to wear foundation, so I just dot concealer on my spots and around my eyes and put a bit of bronzer on for some shimmer. And Glossier Balm Dotcom is really good. I’m replacing my Lucas Pawpaw Ointment with it.

I love Instagram—particularly the fact that I can follow fashion houses and beauty brands and photographers and tattoo artists and also my friends at the same time. Keep it all so close. I have a private Instagram that’s just for me and my friends. I don’t have anything else. I don’t have Facebook, not even a private Facebook or a private Twitter. For me, social media is for stalking my friends and seeing what they’re up to. It’s the quickest way to see if they’re around. I never entered this profession to be a celebrity or to be a spokeswoman or to have my opinion heard. If I’ve got something to say, then I’ll say it, but I don’t think it needs to resonate with millions of people. Also, if I’m not getting work because I don’t have two million followers on Twitter then fuck it. I don’t want to be doing that sort of stuff anyway.”

Steven Spielberg’s ‘Ready Player One’ Finds Female Lead in Olivia Cooke

Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow are behind the movie, which adapts the best-selling sci-fi novel by Ernie Cline.

Olivia Cooke, who starred in Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, has nabbed the female lead in Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One and is in negotiations.

Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow are behind the movie, which adapts the best-selling sci-fi novel by Ernie Cline, and is in the thick of searching for its stars.

The story is set in a virtual world called Oasis, in which a teenager finds himself competing in a treasure hunt against ruthless foes after the game’s founder dies and offers his fortune as the grand prize.

Spielberg has been reading actors in Los Angeles and New York with the hope of finding both the male and female leads at the same time. That hasn’t happened and the hunt for the male continues, though Cooke rose to the top after tests that included Elle Fanning and Lola Kirke (Mozart in the Jungle, Gone Girl).

If a deal is made, Cooke would play the teen’s love interest and competitor, a Canadian blogger named Sam whose name in the virtual world is Art3mis.

Warners had no comment, and calls to Cooke’s representatives, Gersh and Luber Roklin Entertainment, were not immediately returned.

Spielberg is producing with Donald De Line, Kristie Macosko Krieger and Dan Farah.

The role is major breakthrough for Cooke, a rising talent who’s been working mostly in the indie world, while also appearing on A&E’s Bates Motel. She received a big career boost with Dying Girl, the indie that won the Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year and was picked up Fox Searchlight.

While the movie wasn’t the hit the studio hoped for, it lifted Cooke’s profile as one of the key actresses of the new generation. Not only did it put her into contention for Spielberg’s latest tentpole, but her name has surfaced as being on the shortlist for one of the Star Wars movies.

Her stories make you laugh and her rooted-in-reality performances make you cry. Meet Oldham’s finest, actress of the moment Olivia Cooke…

When it comes to choosing film roles, actress Olivia Cooke has two rules. 1) ‘Would I actually want to watch this?’ 2) ‘Is this a well thought out character?’ Answer no to either and Olivia’s out. ‘I don’t want to be hanging out alone while the boys get all the cool stunts,’ she explains. ‘I’d go crazy. I need a challenge.’

This year, many women have echoed her manifesto with Rose McGowan calling out sexism in auditions, Patricia Arquette’s Oscar speech rallying for equal pay for women and Emma Thompson mocking ‘roles that involve saying to a man, “Please don’t go and do that brave thing. Don’t! No, no, no!”’
The difference is, Olivia is 21. She isn’t a household name and she hasn’t experienced decades of inequality, but what she’s saying, in her Oldham accent and through a butter-wouldn’t-melt smile, is “Don’t mess with me.”
Sticking to her guns has paid off. Currently starring in Bates Motel [a TV show watched by millions worldwide], she’s had Teen Vogue editorials and sat front row at fashion week. Her new film Me And Earl And The Dying Girl wowed audiences at Sundance, but it’s taken hard work to be able to call the shots.
In fact, her career used to be more sofa beds and spring rolls than red carpets. ‘My first job was this DFS commercial, I did fuck all!’ she remembers. ‘I sat on a sofa holding a toy. Then I was a background singer to Jason Donovan and Coleen Nolan in an Iceland advert.’
Frozen food’s loss, Hollywood’s gain. In the movie The Quiet Ones she played a girl possessed by demons, and in Bates Motel her character tries to stay afloat while battling cystic fibrosis. But Rachel in Me And Earl And The Dying Girl is her most testing part, playing a student diagnosed with leukaemia.
You might expect what follows – hospital visits, crippling nausea and hair loss giving way to baldness. But then there’s the less obvious, equally crushing obstacles – friends with no clue what to say, unwelcome well-wishers delivering condolence cards, a ridiculous surplus of flowers and grapes. It’s during these moments that her unlikely friendship with Greg [Thomas Mann] turns from comedic partnership to lifeline, although if you’re thinking this is where the romance kicks in, you’ll be disappointed. As Olivia’s proven, she’s not up for playing pretty and falling in love faster than you can say ‘romcom’. ‘It’s not good enough having a “really powerful female role,”’ she says, in a mocking voice. ‘She has to have layers. I don’t want to play anything two-dimensional.’
Rest assured, her performance is far from flat. From getting to know leukaemia patients to shaving her head, Olivia put her all into the role. ‘The hair thing was an easy decision,’ she says. ‘I didn’t want to come across as false. Even with the best make-up artist in the world, you can always tell if it’s not real.’
Me And Earl And The Dying Girl also gained her new BFFs in her co-stars. Away from filming, Olivia, Thomas and RJ Cyler, who plays the ‘Earl’ in the title, took trips around Pittsburgh. Olivia’s favourite was ‘when we hired a boat, but we needed a pee, so we jump in and I’m trying to concentrate when I hear this “Boo!” – I’m like, “Thomas, get away! I’m trying to pee!” He totally ruined my wee!’
These stories come out a lot. From being chased by policemen [‘It wasn’t a good night unless it ended with a police chase!’] to discussing her haunted flat – ‘This guy crawled over me and then introduced me to his friend, a weird, cold girl. Maybe it was a dream?’ – Olivia’s sense of humour is hilarious and unfaltering.
She’s alone in New York for the next month, so I ask her the plan. ‘I’ve been walking around smiling and trying to make friends,’ she says. ‘I’ve got this mentality, it’s like when you start school – if you smile, you become best friends.’
Grinning at strangers isn’t a conventional way of meeting people, but Olivia doesn’t do things by the book, and if she can handle haunted houses and pursuing cops, it sounds like a stellar plan to us.

Spotlight on Olivia Cooke, star of Me and Earl and the Dying Girl

The talented 21-year-old actress from Oldham is a tragi-comic tour de force in the highly acclaimed new comedy drama Me and Earl and the Dying Girl.

‘I didn’t ever want Rachel to be seen as a victim or a tragic character – I wanted her to be this beacon of strength and heart,’ said Olivia Cooke of her role in Me and Earl and the Dying Girl
Who is she? Still only 21, this talented young actress from Oldham has quietly been making a name for herself. After impressing as a traumatised girl alongside Sam Claflin in last year’s horror flick The Quiet Ones, she now plays the female lead in highly acclaimed new comedy drama Me and Earl and the Dying Girl. TV fans will also recognise her from dark drama series Bates Motel, with Freddie Highmore.
Big break Me and Earl was a sensation at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, scooping both the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award. Olivia plays Rachel, an American teenager with leukaemia who forms an unlikely friendship with two boys from her school. The film is quirky, funny and moving – think a platonic The Fault in our Stars meets (500) Days of Summer.

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl was a sensation at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, scooping both the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award
The groundwork Olivia researched her role rigorously, meeting with a teenage cancer patient and doctors. ‘I didn’t ever want Rachel to be seen as a victim or a tragic character – I wanted her to be this beacon of strength and heart,’ she says. ‘But at the same time I did want her illness to be realistic.’ Shaving her head, she says, ‘was the best thing I did to get into the character. I thought it would be really disrespectful, because the movie’s so honest, if you saw me wearing this big, bulky bald cap.’
Fast fact Aged 17, she got a piggyback from Harry Styles in a One Direction tour video, making her the envy of teenage girls everywhere – except perhaps her own mates: ‘None of them likes their music, so I think it was more embarrassing than it was cool…’
Me and Earl and the Dying Girl is in cinemas now.

‘Star Wars: Episode VIII’ Shortlist Includes Gina Rodriguez, Tatiana Maslany, Olivia Cooke

Rian Johnson is directing the sci-fi sequel, which Disney and Lucasfilm will release on May 26, 2017
Golden Globe winner Gina Rodriguez (“Jane the Virgin”), Golden Globe nominee Tatiana Maslany (“Orphan Black”) and “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl” star Olivia Cooke are considered the top contenders for the new female lead in Rian Johnson‘s “Star Wars: Episode VIII,” multiple individuals familiar with the casting situation told TheWrap.
Insiders insist it’s early in the casting process and that Johnson is still auditioning actresses, with several rising stars yet to read for him. Others suggest that Johnson is narrowing down the field and that Rodriguez, Maslany and Cooke will be among a group of girls slated to chemistry-read with “The Force Awakens” star John Boyega before the end of the month.

A representative for Disney declined to comment. The studio will release the sci-fi sequel on May 26, 2017. Ram Bergman is producing the film with Lucasfilm’s Kathy Kennedy, and production is expected to start early next year.

Oscar winner Benicio del Toro is nearing a deal to play the villain in “Star Wars: Episode VIII,” for which plot details remain unknown. However, the Internet has taken it upon itself to speculate that Han Solo’s daughter could be introduced in the film. Rodriguez starred in the acclaimed indie drama “Filly Brown” before landing the title role on the CW’s “Jane the Virgin,” for which she won a Golden Globe. She has demonstrated she can play a strong female lead, and she next stars opposite Mark Wahlberg and Dylan O’Brien in Peter Berg‘s action drama “Deepwater Horizon.” Maslany was a finalist for the lead role in “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” though the coveted part ultimately went to Felicity Jones. Still, Maslany must’ve made a strong impression on Disney and Lucasfilm executives to be back in the mix for “Episode VIII.” In addition to playing multiple characters on “Orphan Black,” Maslany recently played the younger version of Helen Mirren‘s character in “Woman in Black” and wrapped the indie movie “Two Lovers and a Bear” with Dane DeHaan. Cooke stars on “Bates Motel” and drew widespread acclaim for her impressive performance as a young cancer patient in “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl,” which won both the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award at Sundance. She has been in demand ever since, and is in the mix for the female lead in Steven Spielberg‘s “Ready Player One.” She’ll continue to showcase her range as a teenage prostitute in the indie drama “Katie Says Goodbye.”

Steven Spielberg’s ‘Ready Player One’ Eyes Elle Fanning, Lola Kirke and Olivia Cooke for Lead

IIn addition to being on the shortlist for a leading role in Star Wars: Episode 8, rising star Olivia Cooke is also on a shortlist for another major upcoming film: Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of Ernest Cline’s nostalgia-driven novel Ready Player One. Cooke is currently in contention for the role along with Elle Fanning and Mistress America newcomer Lola Kirke.

Kind of a big day for shortlists, as The Wrap reports that the three actresses are in the running to play the leading role in Ready Player One. Cooke is best known for her roles in Bates Motel and Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, while Kirke recently broke out with a leading role in Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig’s Mistress America. Fanning, meanwhile, has a ton of upcoming projects, including the transgender teen drama About Ray, Nicolas Winding Refn’s The Neon Demon, and Ben Affleck’s Live by Night.

Ready Player One takes place in the year 2044, when the creator of a virtual utopia known as OASIS dies and bequeaths his empire to whichever player can successfully complete a treasure hunt. The novel is built entirely on nostalgia and pop culture references — particularly video game references — making it a bit of a tricky adaptation given the various licensing hurdles involved.

It also doesn’t seem like the sort of movie that would attract Spielberg, as it’s the kind of movie that would be directed by someone trying to ape Spielberg’s work. It’s a bit surprising that the director has yet to back out of the project, but with the casting process already begun it appears that Spielberg is still very committed.
