The Silicon Valley star is expected to appear as i-ROk, an internet user who takes pleasure in annoying others on the net. Miller will act opposite such names as Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cook, Simon Pegg, and Ben Mendolsohn. In addition to his aforementioned appearances, Miller has lent his voice to Disney‘s Big Hero 6 as well as Gravity Falls, a show on the studio’s TV network wherein he played a recurring character.
The film he will be working on now is adapted from the best-selling book by Ernest Cline, and so far it seems the project will stay somewhat close to the source material:
Set in the near future, Ready Player One follows outcast teenager Wade Watts (Sheridan), who escapes from his bleak surroundings by logging in to the OASIS, a globally networked virtual utopia where users can lead idyllic alternate lives. When eccentric billionaire who created the OASIS dies, he offers up his vast fortune as the prize in an elaborate treasure hunt. Along with gamers from around the world, Wade joins the adventure, and quickly finds himself pitted against powerful corporate foes and other ruthless competitors who will do anything, in the oasis or the real world, to reach the treasure first.
