Writer Drew Goddard in talks for Project Hail Mary adaptation      

Goddard had previously worked on the adaptation of Andy Weir's bestselling book The Martian

Drew Goddard is in negotiations to come aboard as a writer for the Ryan Gosling-starring space drama Project Hail Mary. The project, being helmed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, is an official adaptation of author Andy Weir's book of the same name.

Goddard had previously worked on the adaptation of Weir's bestselling book, The Martian. The 2015 movie, directed by Ridley Scott and featuring Matt Damon in the lead, was a major commercial as well as critical success.

According to reports, the writer has not formally agreed to pen the screenplay yet, given his busy schedule. However, he may take over the duty going forward. 

Weir's Project Hail Mary is about an astronaut who wakes up to find himself millions of miles away from home, in a tiny craft with two dead crewmates for company and no recollection of his mission or even his name. But this man soon discovers he is humanity's only hope for survival from an extinction-level threat.

Lord and Miller are producing along with Amy Pascal and Aditya Sood, under the Lord Miller production banner. 

Incidentally, Gosling last portrayed astronaut Neil Armstrong in Damian Chazelle's First Man
