    Daisy Ridley to Star in Doug Liman's Post-Apocalyptic Thriller CHAOS WALKING

    [​IMG]

    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.

    Before Star Wars, Ridley was a relative unknown. Since starring in the Lucasfilm and Disney project, the actress has booked several other films, including Ophelia with Naomi Watts and drama The Lost Wife. She also recently shot Star Wars: Episode VIII.

    This project seems very promising. The sci-fi premise sounds intriguing. Edge of Tomorrow's Doug Liman is directing and Charlie Kaufman is adapting it. Plus Daisy Ridley is in this.

    It does sound intriguing. Has a good crew behind it, too.

    That's cool, I'm down for anything with Ridley for now. She seems sweet, can't believe haters chased her off Instagram and got her to delete her account

    People can be so small.

    There are members of this very forum who are so hostile, so negative it's difficult to imagine what they're like in the real world.

    I wonder what the internet would be like if there was no anonymity, and everyone you knew could see everything you say.

    It's a 'young adult' trilogy?


    That doesn't sound promising.

    Sounds like it was petty stuff, but she made a comment on gun violence which always gets people ruffled.

    I bet human beings are the "Chaos Walking" all the animals think about. Because it will be very subtle.

    The premise sounds like it was tailor made to be turned into a film.

    Daisy seems cool. I like hearing that her and Boyega already have interesting stuff lined up outside of Star Wars.

    Hopefully there will be no more Jake Lloyd/Hayden Christensen type shenanigans going on.

    I've been watching too much petite pron. I saw the title and thought Riley Reid was going to be in a new show.

    Tom Holland Joins Doug Liman's Post-Apocalyptic Thriller CHAOS WALKING


    [​IMG]

    Tom Holland, who is playing Spider-Man in next year’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, is in negotiations to join Daisy Ridley in Lionsgate’s post-apocalyptic thriller Chaos Walking.

    Doug Liman is directing the project, an adaptation of the best-selling YA novel by Patrick Ness.

    The story takes place in a world where all women have been killed by a germ and all living creatures can hear one another's thoughts in a stream of images, words and sounds called Noise.

    Holland would star as a boy forced to flee his town with his loyal dog and who comes upon a strange sight: a girl (Ridley).

    Oscar-winning screenwriter Charlie Kaufman (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) worked on the script, as did Jamie Linden (Money Monster).

    Holland made his feature debut with the 2012 tsunami drama The Impossible and made a splashy superhero debut as Peter Parker in this year’s Captain America: Civil War. Earlier this month, he signed on for a key role opposite Benedict Cumberbatch and Michael Shannon in the period drama The Current War.
