Star Wars and Spider-Man. Both young actors are riding the wave of a lifetime right now and they have no plans of slowing down. Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley have been cast in a new Sci-Fi. Lionsgate’s Chaos Walking is an adaptation of a series of novels written by Patrick Ness for the young adult science fiction reader. The movie adaptation is expected to hit Cinemas on March 1st, 2019.
Oscar-winning screenwriter Charlie Kaufman, John Lee Hancock, and Jamie Linden (Money Monster) are said to have worked on the screenplay with Patrick Ness. The story takes place in a fantastical dystopian world in which all living creatures can hear one another’s thoughts in a stream of images, words, and sounds called Noise. Holland stars as the only boy in a town of men who is forced to flee with his loyal dog; in his escape, he discovers a strange and silent girl played by Ridley. This sets off his journey of surprise and self-discovery.
Chaos Walking will be directed by Doug Liman with Doug Davison and Allison Shearmur as producers.
