    I liked the book but did not love it, but I see this becoming the next Gravity if Scott does it right. It’s just the kind of movie that can look amazing on screen.

    Another one from Ridley Scott. O how the mighty have fallen.

    I havent read this so really, what do I know? But it sounds very much like yet another “disaster” film which happens to be set in the Cosmos.

    From a guy like Ridley, who directed the iconic Alien and Blade Runner, his tank appears to be emptying, slowly and torturously.

    If it’s like Gravity, I’ll wait for the DVD. Lol.

    Or perhaps Chastain will be eaten by a Martian animated chronicle with 8 legs (they always have, 6-8 “legs”).

    I’ll wait to see who they rope for the Screenplay credits. Since Damon appears to be cast, maybe they’ll ask him for some pointers.

    So, according to IMDb they’ve got Drew Goddard as being the head writer. He’s got Cabin in the Woods, Cloverfield, World War Z, and some Lost eppies et al as credits.

    Promising.

    So perhaps, a strange bacteria will eat away at Chastain’s body…..

    Right now, I will see anything Ms. Chastain is in.  And kudos to her for embracing so many genre choices in her work, rather than acting in the same “oscar baiting” dramas over and over again.

    This is an actress.

    Sure bboth scott and goddard had their ups and downs with world war z and exodus, hiwever prometheus in my opinion was brilliant and cloverfield and cabin also fantastic. Damon is the lead , it is his sketch in the poster art.

    It’s Matt, and from the very little I can remember from scanning the E-book, it’s akin to being a one-man show; although that cast belies this.

    Damon is. It is not an one-man show by any means. Damon and Chastain have quite juicy characters in hands. Damon’s Matt is one of the most hilarious lead characters you’ll ever see/watch in survival movies/novels like these. He makes jokes, he gets into absurd situations, he laughs, he cries, he feels fear, he dances to 70’s disco music in the middle of nowhere… It’s a great character and in the right hands Damon can pull off an Oscar nod without a problem. Chastain plays the badass commander of the ship that made the decision to leave Damon’s character behind and is struck with guilt by it. Wiig plays the public relations for NASA (what a delicious character).

    So Damon and Chastain are lead contenders and Wiig supporting? Or Chastain supporting too?

    Hopefully a return to form for Scott. Sounds like a great opportunity for Damon as well.

    Sounds like an epic Damon showcase. Wishing him the best. Hopefully it comes out awesome.

    Damon goes from broadly comedic to really emotional once or twice. It’s a great great character. Chastain is a supporting character in the book but it depends on the writing. They can easily make her character a leading one. Wiig has the best and funniest character apart from Damon. With a good writer and a few stellar scenes she could make it. But it’s Ridley Scott we’re talking about…

    He’s also the lead of the new Alexander Payne film called Downsizing and having read a part of the leaked script at the time (still in works of course) I can safely say he’s coming for that Oscar.

    I hope Kate Mara has a good role in this! Love her and would love to see her in some good roles (happy that she’s gonna be in the new Fantastic Four movies, but it isn’t really and awards contender like this could be)
