Captain Marvel writer to pen Artemis film
Geneva Robertson-Dworet has been roped in to adapt author Andy Weir's science-fiction novel for the big screen
Captain Marvel writer Geneva Robertson-Dworet has been roped in to adapt the film version of author Andy Weir's science-fiction novel Artemis. The film will be directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, and produced by Simon Kinberg and Aditya Sood.
Artemis, the follow-up novel by The Martian author, traces the life of a woman named Jazz, a directionless twenty-something constrained by her small town, the titular Artemis - the only city on Moon. With debts to pay and a salary that barely covers the rent, she cannot say no when a life-changing opportunity drops in her lap. But she then finds herself in the middle of a conspiracy for control of Artemis itself.
Aside from the upcoming Captain Marvel, Robertson-Dworet's recent credits include the reboot of Tomb Raider. She is also working on the Spider-Man spinoff Silver & Black.
