Lord & Miller To Direct Weir’s “Artemis”

“The LEGO Movie” and former “Han Solo” helmers Phil Lord and Chris Miller have set up their first post-“Star Wars” project as they’re set up to direct a film adaptation of “Artemis” at 20th Century Fox and New Regency.

Penned by “The Martian” author Andy Weir, the upcoming near-future thriller follows a directionless twentysomething named Jazz who is chafing at the constraints of her small town, Artemis, which so happens to be the first and only city on the moon.

Jazz, a budding smuggler, unwittingly finds herself in the middle of a conspiracy for the control of her hometown. Simon Kinberg and Aditya Sood are producing.
