20th Century Fox and New Regency have acquired the rights to Artemis and are making it a priority to get a movie into production as soon as possible. The movie rights are now owned by 21st Century (Fox bought out by Disney).

The movie's chances of the movie being made are unsure because, since the Disney FOX buy-out, Fox Entertainment's output will drop from approximately 10-12 a year to half. Fox is set to release 7 unknown/unnamed Fox films set to release in 2021, 7 more in 2022, 6 more in 2023 [1] so it is possible one of those is Artemis.

The Martian was extremely popular and Andy Weir's other books are getting attention from other studies such as his upcoming book 'Project Hail Mary' which was bought by MGM and will star Ryan Gosling.[2] Hopefully, this will encourage 21st Century-Disney to push forward with an Artemis movie.
