Audiences really enjoyed Ridley Scott's take on THE MARTIAN, and while this comes as no great surprise, the book is actually better. That's due, in no small part, to the literary stylings of Andy Weir. Weir crafted a book that was not only easy to comprehend (despite some intense science-ing), but also really relatable and funny. Fans of the book will find the following news welcome, as it's been announced that Weir is developing a new film at 20th Century Fox with Ridley Scott producing.

There have been no details released about the story but Weir has been hired on to write the screenplay this time around (you may recall Drew Goddard actually took on screenplay duties for THE MARTIAN). Given Weir's penchant to actually do his homework, this film's story could really go in any direction. What I think we can expect is some decent logic and a lot of fun, so as far as I'm concerned, he could write a film about a call center representative and I'd probably be first in line to see it.

I share the same opinion as Ryan44. The movie was good, but the book was way better. I rarely read but Andy Weir made me laugh as if I was watching a TV show or a movie. I look forward to anything he does from now onwards

The movie did not make me feel like Mars was a terrifying place. The book did. I know they can't put everything into a movie, but I didn't feel like Mars was scary enough in Ridley's movie.
As for writing something else...I hope that something cool can come out of it. I think the story of The Martian was kind of a one off of amazingness. I look forward to something cool, but Andy Weir set the bar pretty high for himself.
