Tom Holland in Talks to Join Daisy Ridley in “Chaos Walking” Movie

Tom Holland (In The Heart of the Sea, Captain America: Civil War, The Impossible), who currently holds the mantle as Spider-Man for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is in talks to star alongside Daisy Ridley (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Scrawl, Lifesaver) in the movie adaptation of the Chaos Walking trilogy by Patrick Ness.

The Chaos Walking series takes place in a world in which a virus has wiped out all the women, and all the men and animals can hear each others thoughts in a never ending bombardment of sound that they call The Noise. Young Todd Hewitt (Holland) has known nothing but this loud, womanless life – until one day while walking his dog, he stumbles into complete silence. And in the centre of that silence, sits a young girl named Viola (Ridley).

Doug Liman, known for his work on Edge of Tomorrow, is currently on board to direct the project, with Charlie Kaufman (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) and Jamie Linden (Money Monster) having worked on the script.

Producers will be Doug Davison (Mena, which Liman has directed) and Allison Shearmur (Rogue One, Cinderella).

The first movie in the Chaos Walking adaptation will presumably follow the plot of the first book (The Knife of Never Letting Go) – as of yet, there is no anticipated release date.
