Ryan Gosling will play the main role and become the producer of the movie adaptation of the novel by the author of "The Martian" Andy Weir. According to Collider, the project is set to go into production by MGM, which agreed to pay a seven-figure sum for the right to direct the movie.
Weir's work, The Hail Mary, tells the story of an astronaut trying to save the world while locked away alone in a spaceship. It will be published only next year, but the practice of buying rights even before the release of a literary work is not unusual.
Recall that the movie based on the book "The Martian", directed by Ridley Scott, starred in it Matt Damon. The tape was successful at the box office, raising over $ 600 million with a production budget of just $ 100 million. Her success dramatically increased the stakes of the writer himself in Hollywood, turning his works into some of the most coveted for movie adaptations.
Note also that Gosling himself had previously played American astronauts. In 2018, the movie "Man on the Moon" was released with the participation of the actor, in which it was about Neil Armstrong, the first person to set foot on the surface of the Earth's satellite.
