Daisy Ridley to star in the Doug Liman directed Chaos Walking adaptation



Daisy Ridley (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) is set to star in an adaptation of the Young Adult book, Chaos Walking by Patrick Ness.

Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow) is set to direct the film. Jamie Linden wrote the most recent script with Allison Shearmur and Doug Davison producing.

“Chaos Walking: The Knife of Never Letting Go,” published in 2008 as the first book in a trilogy, is set in a dystopian world where all living creatures can hear each other’s thoughts.
The book is centered on the only boy in a town of men, who makes a startling discovery that forces him to flee with only his dog in hand. With the townspeople in pursuit, the duo stumbles upon a strange and silent girl. They set off on a white-knuckle journey in which the boy must unlearn everything he knows in order to figure out who he truly is.

Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer confirmed the casting Thursday on the company’s earnings call with Wall Street analysts, saying that film would go into production next year.

I’ve not read the book, but if you have would this be a good fit for Daisy?
