Chaos Walking release date and synopsis revealed
Lionsgate has revealed the Chaos Walking release date and official synopsis. The YA adaptation stars Tom Holland (Captain America: Civil War, Spider-Man: Homecoming) and Daisy Ridley (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Star Wars: The Last Jedi). The film is set for a wide release on March 1, 2019, when it will open directly against Dreamworks Animation’s How to Train Your Dragon 3, and will also compete with Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel the following week on March 8.
The big screen adaptation of author Patrick Ness‘ young adult trilogy will be directed by Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow, Mr. & Mrs. Smith), with the post-apocalyptic tale officially described as follows:
From Carnegie Award-winning author Patrick Ness comes a bold cinematic experience beyond imagination. Todd Hewitt lives on the distant planet of New World—a new hope for humanity until struck by “The Noise,” a virus which inflicts immersive visions of ones’ every thought. The cacophony drives many mad until Todd makes a hidden, silent discovery: there is a girl named Viola, who may be the key to unlocking New World’s many layered secrets. Together, the two unlikely companions are forced on a white-knuckle adventure into an unexplored planet – trying to escape and hide in an environment where all thought is heard, all movement seen –as they both discover the truth about the lives they left behind and the spectacular world they’ve learned to call home.
Doug Davison (who worked with Liman on next year’s Tom Cruise-starrer Mena) and Alli Shearmur (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Cinderella) are producing Chaos Walking with Robert Zemeckis and his ImageMovers’ partner Jack Rapke.
