Los Angeles: Sony has acquired the rights to Astronaut Scott Kelly's yet-to-be-published memoir, "Endurance: My Year in Space" and the studio is planning to make a movie adaptation.

Amy Pascal and Rachel O'Connor will produce the adaptation under Pascal Pictures banner along with Elizabeth Cantillon, while Kelly and his twin brother, also an astronaut, Mark, will serve as co-executive producers, confirmed Entertainment Weekly.

Kelly's memoir is scheduled for publication in November 2017. The book will chronicle his early struggles as a C-student, his training as a Navy test pilot and the highly competitive drive he and his identical twin brother underwent to become astronauts.

Kelly is the pioneering astronaut, who spent nearly a year in space for a special mission on the International Space Station.
