Through many films throughout his career, Simon Pegg has had a chance to work with many directors. But none of them have been Steven Spielberg.

Until now.

Pegg, who plays Scott in the Star Trek films — including this year’s upcoming “Star Trek: Beyond” — is set to appear in the upcoming Spielberg film “Ready Player One.”

Based on the 2011 novel by Ernest Cline, the film focuses on the death of a billionaire some 20 years from now, who decides to distribute his fortune to players of a massively multiplayer online game called “The Oasis.” One of the players, Wade Watts — played by “X-Men: Apocalypse” actor Tye Sheridan — who ends up fighting people in both the real and online world to get the money.

Pegg will play Ogden Morrow, the surviving co-creator of Oasis, who is more like the Steve Wozniak to the Steve Jobs in the dynamic of the game, to use a popular Apple computer analogy. They both will be joined by Olivia Cooke as Samantha Evelyn Cook and Ben Mendelsohn as the villain Nolan Sorrento, in the film.
