Ron Howard can keep the Han Solo movie and his blurry selfies with Donald Glover! Phil Lord and Chris Miller have landed on their first post–Han Solo feature: an adaptation of Artemis, the novel by The Martian author Andy Weir. Per Deadline, the directing duo was interested in the forthcoming sci-fi novel (due November 17) because it’s not part of a franchise like The Lego Movie or 21 Jump Street or, you know, Star Wars. Weir’s book is described as a crime caper that takes place on the Artemis, the moon’s first city. The lead character is Jasmine Bashara, a fledgling smuggler in her 20s who gets a big break. No word on whether she’ll shoot first.
