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.
According to The Wrap multiple individuals familiar with the project have confirmed that Robert Zemeckis is in negotiations to direct Lionsgate’s latest young-adult sci-fi movie. Nothing has been confirmed as of yet.
Oscar-winning screenwriter Charlie Kaufman is adapting the books, and Doug Davison (Oldboy) is producing through his Quadrant Pictures banner along with Allison Shearmur (Cinderella).
Chaos Walking is set in a dystopian future where humans have colonized a distant Earth-like planet. When an infection called the Noise suddenly makes all thought audible, privacy vanishes and chaos ensues, leading a corrupt autocrat to threaten to take control of the human settlements and wage war with the indigenous alien race.
