Universal Pictures to Adapt Ernie Cline’s Armada


Just days after the novel was set up at Crown Publishing, Variety reports that Ernie Cline’s upcoming Armada is already set for adaptation at Universal Pictures.

“I’m still sworn to secrecy about the plot of the novel,” Cline writes on his official site, “but if you enjoyed ‘Ready Player One’, I strongly suspect that you’ll enjoy ‘Armada’, too.”

Ready Player One, Cline’s first book, is set up for an adaptation at Warner Bros.
