Novelist and screenwriter Ernie Cline has scored a book deal for a new novel called Armada. The author debuted with Ready Player One, a novel currently being adapted by Warner Brothers.

Farah Films & Management manager Dan Farah and Foundry Literary agent Yfat Reiss Gendell negotiated the deal with Random House’s Crown Publishing division. Julian Pavia will edit.

Here’s more from the release: “The publishing deals are based on a 20 page proposal by Cline. Film rights are expected to find a studio home quickly. Story details are currently being kept under wraps, but the story is said to have a high concept hook that offers the ultimate wish fulfillment to every video game fan on the planet.”
