Fox has bought Weir's pitch, and has hired him to write the script. It will be Weir's first screenplay. No logline has been revealed.

The Martian was self-published in 2011 as a free serial on his website, before he sold it on Amazon Kindle. He eventually sold the rights to Crown Publishing, and it became a New York Times bestseller.
