Star Wars’ Daisy Ridley to Face the Apocalypse in Chaos Walking


Some interesting news is coming via THR, who report that Star Wars: The Force Awakens star Daisy Ridley has signed on to topline Lionsgate’s YA adaptation Chaos Walking.

Doug Liman is directing the post-apocalyptic thriller, which takes place in a world where all living creatures can hear one another’s thoughts in a stream of images, words, and sounds called “Noise.”

Lionsgate picked up the rights to Patrick Ness’ best-selling young-adult trilogy in 2011. Oscar-winning screenwriter Charlie Kaufman (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) adapted the book, and Jamie Linden (Money Monster) penned a draft.

Doug Davison, who produced the Liman-directed Tom Cruise starrer Mena, is producing alongside Allison Shearmur (Rogue One, Cinderella).
