You have to hand it to Lionsgate. With The Twilight Saga behind them and The Hunger Games in full swing, the studio is still on the lookout for the next big thing with young adults. Enter Patrick Ness’ bestselling young-adult trilogy Chaos Walking.
Early last October we got word that Lionsgate had secured film rights to the Chaos Walking trilogy of young-adult novels by Patrick Ness, and now today we've learned who will be writing the first installment in the series based on The Knife of Never Letting Go.
With the film adaptations of The Twilight Saga coming to a much needed end, studios are scrambling to find the next big money maker, and even though Lionsgate has already sunk its claws into The Hunger Games series, that's not stopping them from looking elsewhere. Better to be safe than sorry, right?
