Los Angeles, Mar 28: Actor Ryan Gosling will be venturing into the space genre once again with the upcoming film adaptation of author Andy Weir’s book “Project Hail Mary”.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, MGM studio is in negotiations to pick up the project.
Gosling, 39, who last portrayed astronaut Neil Armstrong in director Damian Chazelle’s “First Man”, will also produce the new movie alongside Ken Kao.
