Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave), Sebastian Stan (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) and Mackenzie Davis (What If) have been cast in Ridley Scott’s science fiction thriller The Martian, based on the novel by Andy Weir.

They join an already-announced ensemble cast that includes Matt Damon, Kate Mara, Jeff Daniels, Michael Pena, Kristen Wiig, Jessica Chastain and Sean Bean.
