'ARTEMIS' SF NOVEL
TO BECOME MOON SET MOVIE
Deadline reports that a new book from The Martian author Andy Weir titled ARTEMIS will be turned into a movie directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. To be published November 17th, it centres on
Jasmine Bashara, aka Jazz, just another too-smart, directionless twenty something chafing at the constraints of her small town and dreaming of a better life. Except the small town happens to be named Artemis — and it’s the first and only city on the moon. She’s got debts to pay, her job as a porter barely covers the rent, and her budding career as a smuggler isn’t exactly setting her up as a kingpin, much to her disappointment. So when the chance at a life-changing score drops in her lap, Jazz can’t say no, and she finds herself in the middle of a conspiracy for control of Artemis itself.
