Leave a comment

The Martian is an upcoming science fiction film directed by Ridley Scott. The screenplay by Drew Goddard is based on the 2011 novel The Martian by Andy Weir. The U.S. production stars Matt Damon, with Jessica Chastain, Michael Peña, Kristen Wiig, Jeff Daniels, Kate Mara, and Donald Glover in supporting roles. It will mark Scott’s fourth science-fiction film after Alien (1979), Blade Runner (1982), and Prometheus (2012).

The film is scheduled to be released on October 2, 2015 in 3D and 2D.

Kids Talk Radio: Two years ago I had a chance to interview “The Martian” author Andy Weir.  At the time there was not a movie deal in the works.  I am so happy that they made a movie out of this great story.  Andy is a great writer.  However, there are lots of bad words in the book.  So, I could not recommend it for K-12 education.  I hope the movie is PG rated so kids can see it.
