Since the success of The Cabin in the Woods, we’ve been waiting patiently to see what director Drew Goddard would be up to next. It sounds as if he may just have found a project that he can sink his teeth into. Read on for details.
According to The Wrap, Goddard (pictured) is in negotiations to write and direct The Martian for Fox. Based on the e-book by Andy Weir, The Martian follows an astronaut who becomes stranded on Mars and must figure out how to survive long enough to return to Earth.
The project has been described as a cross between Apollo 13 and Cast Away, and insiders say it is quite different from Alfonso Cuaron’s upcoming drama Gravity, which finds Sandra Bullock stranded in space. I don’t know. Sounds more like Enemy Mine to us, but who knows?
More on this one as it comes.
