Director Ridley Scott is helming The Martian, an upcoming action adventure science-fiction movie based on the novel of the same name by American author Andy Weir. And Actor Matt Damon got the lead role as NASA astronaut Mark Watney. The film is now in post-production But here’s a picture from the set in the Jordanian desert in the Middle East
“During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive.”
That truck-like vehicle in the background must be Watney’s Mars rover.
Besides Matt Damon, the cast also includes Kate Mara, Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Sebastian Stan, Sean Bean, Donald Glover, Mackenzie Davis, Michael Peña, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Jeff Daniels.
The release date of The Martian is set to November 25, 2015.
