Drew Goddard Eyes The Martian


The Cabin the Woods director Drew Goddard appears to have found his next project. The Wrap reports that Goddard is in talks to helm 20th Century Fox’s big screen adaptation of Andy Weir’s 2012 e-book publication The Martian.

The book, which is currently unavailable pending a print edition from Random House in 2014, is simply described as being, “The adventures of an astronaut stranded on Mars.”

Although Cabin was Goddard’s directorial debut, he’s also well-known as a screenwriter, having worked on television shows like “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Angel,” and “Alias” and feature film projects like Cloverfield and the upcoming World War Z.

Simon Kinberg and Aditya Sood are attached to produce The Martian.
