Ridley Scott in Talks to Direct Matt Damon in Mars Movie

The Hollywood Reporter reports Ridley Scott is in talks to direct Matt Damon in The Martian, replacing Drew Goddard, who has his hands full with The Amazing Spider-Man spinoff Sinister Six. Adapted from Andy Weir's self-released 2012 novel, Damon will play an astronaut stranded and struggling to survive on Mars. Wonder if Martians like apples.
