The writer Andy Weir published his debut novel in parts on the blog, until the publishers paid attention to "The Martian". The book about an astronaut who is forced to survive alone on the Red Planet attracted Hollywood producers as well. Ridley Scott successfully turned it into a seven Oscar-nominated film. Unsurprisingly, Weir's new work was once again the subject of Hollywood talks.|
MGM is now planning to buy the film rights to The Hail Mary *, which will not be out until next year. At the same time, the company is ready to shell out millions for the adaptation and has already found a star for its new film: Ryan Gosling will play the main role in it. He will also act as one of the producers of the project.
Little is known about the plot of the future book. The novel is reported to be the story of a lone astronaut on a spaceship, tasked with saving the planet.
At least Ryan Gosling is no stranger to space travel. Although the drama "Man on the Moon" did not perform well at the box office and was considered one of the box office failures of 2018, it won an Oscar for Best Visual Effects.
