‘Cloverfield,’ ‘Cabin in the Woods’ Goddard Becomes ‘The Martian’

The Cabin in the WoodsDrew Goddard is in negotiations to write and direct The Martian for Fox, TheWrap reports..

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.

Simon Kinberg is producing through his Genre Films banner along with Aditya Sood. Fox exec Steve Asbell is overseeing the project for the studio.\

Goddard is one of Hollywood’s most sought-after screenwriters, having written Cloverfield for Matt Reeves and J.J. Abrams, as well as Robopocalypse for Steven Spielberg.
