Casting directors are seeking the following role:
- Jazz Bashara - Female, mid-twenties, Middle Eastern descent and raised Muslim. Jazz has lived on the moon since she was 6. She’s poor - but with an incredibly clever and scientific mind, she’s become the moon’s go-to smuggler which helps her secretly pay off her father’s debts. Having been let down too many times, she has hard time trusting people - but she covers up her insecurities with bravado.

According to Deadline, Phil Lord & Christopher Miller have signed on to develop to direct Artemis
, the book by The Martian
author Andy Weir. Artemis
is described as an adrenaline-charged crime caper that features smart, detailed world-building based on real science. It centers on Jasmine Bashara, aka Jazz, just another too-smart, directionless twentysomething chafing at the constraints of her small town and dreaming of a better life. Except the small town happens to be named Artemis — and it’s the first and only city on the moon. She’s got debts to pay, her job as a porter barely covers the rent, and her budding career as a smuggler isn’t exactly setting her up as a kingpin, much to her disappointment. So when the chance at a life-changing score drops in her lap, Jazz can’t say no, and she finds herself in the middle of a conspiracy for control of Artemis itself.
