Looks like Steven Spielberg has found his new leading lady!  Olivia Cooke hot off her critically acclaimed role is this summer's Indie hit Me and Earl and the Dying Girl has landed the lead female role in the Ready Player One adaptation over several other up and coming Hollywood leading ladies.

Olivia will most likely be playing the role Art3mis in the film and will have duel roles, one inside the virtual game world called the Oasis, and the other being in the "real world".  Read the full report from TheHollywoodReporter below.

According to TheHollywoodReporter:

Olivia Cooke, who starred in Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, has nabbed the female lead in Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One and is in negotiations.

Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow are behind the movie, which adapts the best-selling sci-fi novel by Ernie Cline, and is in the thick of searching for its stars.

The story is set in a virtual world called Oasis in which a teenager finds himself competing in a treasure hunt against ruthless foes after the game’s founder dies and offers his fortune as the grand prize.

Spielberg has been reading actors in Los Angeles and New York and the hope was to find the male and female leads at the same time. That hasn’t happened as the hunt for the male continues, although Cooke rose to the top after tests that included Elle Fanning and Lola Kirke (Mozart in the Jungle, Gone Girl).
