First Poster for “Chaos Walking” Is Revealed

Chaos Walking is an upcoming film based off of Patrick’s Ness’s book, The Knife of Never Letting Go, which came out in 2008. This story introduces readers to Todd Hewitt, the only boy who exists in Prentisstown, which is a settlement on an alien planet. Due to a virus that wreaked havoc on humanity, all of the human women who lived on the planet were killed off, and the male survivors gained the ability to hear the thoughts of other people and animals. This constant source of sound is referred to as the “Noise.”

 

 

When Todd escapes one day from his town, he encounters a young girl named Viola, who does not speak initially. Todd learns more about Viola’s past as they work together, it comes to light that Viola crash-landed on the planet and she does not suffer from the Noise like Todd does. So the stakes are now raised: can they help Viola contact her people, and can they also find a cure for the Noise?

Chaos Walking is based off of Ness’s trilogy that goes by the same name. Those who have been waiting in anticipation for news of this film have now learned that Tom Holland was cast as Todd, and Daisy Ridley was cast as Viola.

Additionally, fans have received an additional treat now that the first poster for the film has been released to the public:
