Is Christopher Nolan traveling to a nerdy future for his next film?
In one of this week's stranger rumors, "Interstellar" director Christopher Nolan may be going back to the '80-obsessed future for his next film.
Warner Bros. has reportedly offered an adaptation of Ernest Cline's novel "Ready Player One" to the "Dark Knight" director, according to a report on The Tracking Board.
Adapted by Zak Penn ("X-Men: The Last Stand"), "Ready" takes place in the near future, where a teenager takes part in an immersive virtual reality treasure hunt which relies on players' knowledge of 1980s pop culture.
This is all firmly in the Rumor File for now, and it wouldn't be surprising to hear that WB at least offered just about every property they get to Nolan, whose films with the studio have grossed billions.
While he could be a great choice for a film about a futuristic, virtual treasure hunt, it's a bit difficult to imagine him directing a teen quoting "Ghostbusters" or dissecting the minutia of "Ms. Pac-Man."
Meanwhile, "Interstellar" is still in theaters.
