Empire has revealed the first photo of Olivia Cookie as Art3mis in Ready Player One.

She said of the role: “It felt like pure adventure. It was Willy Wonka, it was Indiana Jones. When you’re a kid wanting to be an actor, the idea of working with [Spielberg] sounds absurd. It was surreal.

The film was directed by Steven Spielberg from a script by Ernest Cline (based on his book), Zak Penn and Eric Eason. It stars Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cook, Mark Rylance, Simon Pegg, and Ben Mendelsohn. Spielberg will produce with Donald De Line (De Line Pictures), Dan Farah and Kristie Macosko Krieger, with Bruce Berman executive producing and Alan Silvestri composing the score. It arrives on March 30, 2018.

Here’s a synopsis: 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.
