Tye Sheridan Going From ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ To Leading Spielberg’s ‘Ready Player One’
Deadline reports that young actor Tye Sheridan has landed the male lead role of Wade in Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One, which is setup at Warner Bros.
His co-stars include Olivia Cooke and Ben Mendelsohn.
It’s expected the role could develop into a reoccurring franchise lead, with potential sequel commitments in his contact.
Tye will next be seen as the young 80’s version of Scott Summers aka Cyclops in Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse. He had also been my favorite for the young Spider-Man role, before he was cast in the X-Men franchise.
