OMG! Steven Spielberg is in Birmingham shooting epic new movie Ready Player One


A touch of Hollywood glamour has come to the unassuming streets of Birmingham today as Steven Spielberg shoots his epic new video game adventure Ready Player One in Digbeth.

Based on Ernest Cline's bestselling novel, described as a 'mixture of Tron and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory', it's the thrilling and topical story of a video game designer who, prior to his death, left the secrets to his immense fortune within the world of his latest creation. The race is therefore on for a group of dedicated gamers to enter the virtual reality world and be the first to the prize – but death and danger await along the way. Check out the set video below.

Starring Simon Pegg, Mark Rylance, Ben Mendelsohn, Olivia Cooke and Tye Sheridan, Ready Player One is released on 30th March 2018.
