This film has been plagued with delays but it's finally making some solid progress. Here's what we know so far.
Disney's biggest new stars Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley will be headlining Lionsgate's new movie 'Chaos Walking' based on Patrick Ness’s 2008-2010 novel series. Here's everything we know about it so far.
The film was announced way back in 2017 and was supposed to be released in March 2019 but the production was then plagued by delays. The studio opted for $15 million worth of reshoots but the reshoots got delayed because of Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley's busy schedules. The new release date for the film is January 22, 2021.
The headlining stars are Tom Holland (Spider-Man: Homecoming) who plays Todd Hewitt and Daisy Ridley (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) who plays Viola Eade.
Hannibal star Mads Mikkelsen plays the main villain Mayor Prentiss.
Demián Bichir from Alien: Covenant plays Ben Moore, one of Todd’s adoptive fathers. And Kurt Sutter plays Cillian Boyd, another of Todd’s adoptive fathers.
Nick Jonas of the Jonas Brothers will also be a part of the film as Davy Prentiss Jr., the Mayor’s son and soldier.
Then we have Cynthia Erivo playing Hildy, the leader of a peaceful settlement.
Chaos Walking is the first part of a sci-fi trilogy by Patrick Ness. The synopsis of the first story is:
Todd Hewitt is the only boy in a town of men. Ever since the settlers were infected with the Noise germ, Todd can hear everything the men think, and they hear everything he thinks. Todd is just a month away from becoming a man, but in the midst of the cacophony, he knows that the town is hiding something from him — something so awful Todd is forced to flee with only his dog, whose simple, loyal voice he hears too. With hostile men from the town in pursuit, the two stumble upon a strange and eerily silent creature: a girl. Who is she? Why wasn’t she killed by the germ like all the females on New World? Propelled by Todd’s gritty narration, readers are in for a white-knuckle journey in which a boy on the cusp of manhood must unlearn everything he knows in order to figure out who he truly is.
We have yet to see a trailer but we probably can expect it anytime now. It's been in production for quite some time with loads of footage for a solid trailer.
