HOLLYWOOD – Ready Player One side character – the Iron Giant – proves so popular he’s going to get his own spinoff outing.
Steven Spielberg has packed Ready Player One with delirious entertainment and a whole slew of characters. One of them however stands literally head and shoulders above the others and now has earned himself a new spinoff movie.
Spielberg spoke tot he EXEC:
While we were making the movie, we kept wanting to put more of the big guy in. He was so fun to work with and looked great. The only thing that left me feeling a bit down was the way he bowed out. It was basically Shrek 2. I think he deserved better and so the idea of a stand alone movie.
But doesn’t he already have…?
And there are other characters I’d like to see get another chance. There’s this little character who we see just for a split second. He has a hat and stripy jumper and knives for fingers. He’s called Freddy but we only glimpse him. We do a whole series of films on that guy.
Nightmare on Elm Street.
Stop babbling Exec. And obviously the whole Shining part. Of course that’s already a movie. But wouldn’t it be great if I remade it with more action?
