"The Martian" was briefly stranded in Hollywood development when Ridley Scott reached out to Matt Damon.The unexpected combinations of talent that went into making "The Martian" are fitting for a movie of such hybrid entertainments.The solitary extreme of "The Martian" may be reminiscent of "Gravity," but its closeness to another recent space drama infused with the spirit of space exploration – Christopher Nolan's "Interstellar," in which Damon was also alone on a distant planet – gave the actor pause."The Martian" was his first film since "Interstellar"."The Martian," which premiered at the Toronto International film Festival, has been portrayed as a return-to-form for Scott following critical disappointments like "Exodus" and his Cormac McCarthy adaptation "The Counselor".Having Scott aboard, Damon says, mitigated his concerns about playing most of his scenes alone.
