Phil Lord and Chris Miller have found their next directing job! The directing duo were set to helm the Han Solo movie but ended up being prematurely fired halfway through production. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lord and Miller are set to direct Artemis, an adaptation of Andy Weir’s upcoming sci-fi book. Of course, Weir is well-known for writing The Martian, which found massive success when it was adapted into the film starring Matt Damon.
The book, which will be released this November, is set in the near future, in a small town named Artemis, which also happens to be the first city on the moon. The story follows Jazz, a 20-something smuggler, who gets caught up in a dangerous conspiracy.
Phil Lord and Chris Miller found success directing the massively popular 21 Jump Street and its sequel, 22 Jump Street. The duo also directed The LEGO Movie.
