CHAOS WALKING Casts Daisy Ridley!


Filmmaker Doug Liman may be a bit despondent over losing his baby by 2005, but the former still has a several reasons to stay optimistic...well, a few. Null at the moment, of course, is Gambit since actor Channing Tatum is signed to playing a damn merman in some remake I could care less about while other prospects lie with a hopeful Edge Of Tomorrow sequel.

His newest feature film endeavor, however, now lies with Lionsgate for Chaos Walking, based on the 2008 YA novel trilogy launchpad from author Patrick Ness. As of this week, word from Variety now has it that the new frontwoman of the latest Star Wars trilogy, actress Daisy Ridley is joining in the role of a strange, silent girl who joins our young male protagonist and his dog on a perilous, and deadly journey of self discovery.

Here's a description of the book from the author's website:
Imagine you’re the only boy in a town of men. And you can hear everything they think. And they can hear everything you think. Imagine you don’t fit in with their plans… 
Todd Hewitt is just one month away from the birthday that will make him a man. But his town has been keeping secrets from him. Secrets that are going to force him to run…

Jamie Linden penned the script with Dave Davison and Alison Sheamur producing as the film rolls cameras next year. Stay tuned!
