The 77-year-old director will be replacing Drew Goddard, who wrote the script for the film before leaving the project for Spider-Man spinoff 'Sinister Six', the Hollywood Reporter reported.

The movie is based on the book 'Martian' by Andy Weir and centers around an astronaut who is trapped on a Martian colony while NASA tries to mount a rescue mission on Earth.

Scott will also be producing the film along with Simon Kinberg and Aditya Sood.
