For the second time in as many years, Matt Damon will be starring in a sci-fi film as an astronaut stranded all alone on a planet.

In Ridley Scott’s The Martian, Damon plays Mark Watney, an astronaut stranded on Mars and struggling to survive. To further invite comparisons, both films star Jessica Chastain. But Matt Damon would like to assure you that these films are very different.

Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are about to get themselves some of that faith-based drama money. Cha-ching. The duo are producing the upcoming biblical drama Apostle Paul, with Hugh Jackman signing on to star as the film’s titular protagonist, a man responsible for writing almost half of the books in the New Testament.

Has it profitable? Sure. Is it safe? No.
