Ridley Scott is adapting Andy Weir's novel The Martian starring Matt Damon in the lead role. To be honest, I imagined the main character as more of an everyman...

Any way, The Martian is about an astronaut, Mark Watney, who gets stranded on Mars when his expedition leaves due to an emergency. The novel then becomes a struggle by Watney to survive until he can be rescued. It's a damned fine novel and an example of the hardest type of science fiction.

AICN reports the first round of viral marketing for the film has hit:

I was excited to see Jessica Chastain in the case, and wikipedia indicates there's also some Chiwetel Ejiofor and Sean Bean action.
