Director Ridley Scott has confirmed the identity of his next film: The Martian, starring Matt Damon...

We heard about a month ago the story that Ridley Scott might be set to direct an adaptation of the science fiction survival film The Martian, based on Andy Weir's book of the same name. This has now been confirmed by the director himself, along with the news that Matt Damon will indeed play the leading role of an astronaut stuck on the surface of Mars.

This leaves the lingering question: who's going to direct Prometheus 2? The Martian is currently scheduled for release next year, while Prometheus 2 is pencilled in for a 2016 release.

More news on both as it comes in.
