Geneva Robertson-Dworet, the woman behind the upcoming Captain Marvel, has been called upon to adapt The Martian author Andy Weir’s latest novel, Artemis, for Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller.
Released last November by Crown Publishing, Artemis follows a directionless 20-something Jazz from Artemis, the first and only city on the moon. A smuggler, she finds herself in the middle of a conspiracy for the control of her hometown.
Artemis was picked up preemptively by Fox and New Regency last May. Aditya Sood and Simon Kinberg are producing via Genre Films. Michael Shaefer is overseeing for New Regency and Steve Asbell is overseeing for Fox.
Andy Weir’s previous adaptation, The Martian (2015) directed by Ridley Scott was a massive success, bringing in $630 million at the global box office in addition to seven Oscar nominations.
Robinson-Dworet is becoming one of Hollywood’s well-known blockbuster writers. She has worked in writers’ rooms for Paramount’s Transformers and also penned the recent Tomb Raider reboot. She has credits on in-development projects such as Dungeons & Dragons. She is repped by WWE, Management 360 and Hansen Jacobson.
