Chaos Walking: Everything We Know So Far

After a long wait, Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley's 'Chaos Walking’ will finally hit theaters in March.

This article was recently reviewed and is up to date as of February 8, 2021.

It's been a long time coming, but 'Chaos Walking' is finally here (almost). 

Based on Patrick Ness’ book 'Chaos Walking: The Knife of Never Letting Go,' the film will introduce us to a not so distant world where men can see and hear each other's thoughts. 

The sci-fi adventure film starring Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley was originally set to release in 2019 but got pushed back for two more years.

Here is everything we know so far.

When Will 'Chaos Walking’ Release?

Listed release date as of this writing: 5 March 2021

After three years since completion, Tom Holland's 'Chaos Walking' is now set to release in theaters on 5 March 2021. 

The film has already suffered numerous delays since pre-production. 'Chaos Walking' was first announced in 2011 with the first script draft written by Charlie Kaufman. Kaufman subsequently left, and the script underwent several revisions from Jamie Linden, Lindsey Beer, Gary Spinelli, John Lee Hancock, Christopher Ford, and Ness himself.

The film finally entered production after Doug Liman joined as a director in 2016, and in 2017 filming finally wrapped up.

The film is initially set to release on March 1, 2019, but was removed from the schedule again to accommodate reshoots after poor test screenings.

After all the hurdles, 'Chaos Walking' is finally coming to theaters on 5 March 2021. (No more delays, we truly hope.)
