Cusack and Peet Have a Favorite "Martian"

by | April 20, 2005 | Comments

Described by The Hollywood Reporter as "a cross between E.T. and Parenthood" is the upcoming family film "The Martian Child." John Cusack ("High Fidelity") and Amanda Peet ("The Whole Nine Yards") are set to play the lead roles, and Menno Meyjes ("Max") will be in the director’s chair. First-time feature screenwriters Jonathan Tolins and Seth Bass will be adapting David Gerrold’s short story. Plus Joan Cusack‘s set to play the sister of John’s character … which is great because they really are siblings, and because Joan’s usually pretty hilarious.
