AceShowbiz - Shooting on "The Martian" is still ongoing, and first on-set photo has surfaced. The photo shows the film's leading actor Matt Damon posing with Andy Weir, who wrote a novel on which the big screen feature is based.
The twosome can be seen smiling to the camera with a practical rover in the background. Weir published the pic on his Facebook account and captioned it, "Matt Damon's assistant, Colin (a hardcore Seattle Seahawks fan) lost their Super Bowl bet. So now he has to wear a Patriots jersey for a year.And hey, look at that name patch on Matt's shirt!"
"The Martian" tells the story of Damon's Mark Watney, an astronaut who "becomes stranded on Mars and must figure out how to survive long enough to return to Earth." Besides Damon, the science-fiction movie stars Jessica Chastain, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Kristen Wiig. Directed by Ridley Scott, it is slated for November 25 release.
