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:

Get Ready Atlanta, Marvel’s Spiderman 3 Filming This July!

I’m beyond excited to hear and share this news! Since Spiderman: Far From Home‘s massive cliffhanger, I have been dying to hear more about the future for Tom Holland’s Peter Parker. With Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio exposing Peter and making him seem like the bad guy in front of the ENTIRE city?! I left the theater with nothing but shock and the need to know what was happening next.

We don’t have much about the film story wise as Marvel is always so tight lipped when it comes to projects, especially one as big as this one and even more especially when Holland is involved because we know he can’t really keep a secret. But we do have confirmation of when shooting will FINALLY begin. Holland confirmed it himself that Spiderman 3 will start shooting in Atlanta, this July! But he has no idea what Parker’s involvement will be in any other MCEU movie after that.

It’s a bit of bittersweet news but sweet all the same. Oh and yes! Ms. Zendaya is back playing MJ! If she wasn’t we were going to have a serious problem, just saying!  Are any of you guys MCEU trash like I am? I’m stoked for 2021 Marvel. We’ve got Spiderman 3, Shang-chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, Thor: Love and Thunder. And not to mention all of the Disney + shows. It’s going to be crazy.

The Chaos of Chaos Walking

Stay strong, Chaos Walking fans, one day our film will come – maybe.

The Chaos Walking adaption has been a long time in the making. The first book in the series by Patrick Ness, The Knife of Never Letting Go, was published in 2008 by Walker Books. In 2011, Lionsgate acquired the rights to a film adaption of the entire trilogy. As a massive fan of the series I, like many others, was excited. The original story was well-written, fleshed out, exciting, all the ingredients of a stellar film version were there.

What’s more, news about the adaption was gaining traction, especially after some of the cast was announced. Tom Holland was brought on board as Todd, the story’s 12-year-old protagonist, alongside Daisy Ridley as Viola. Filming started in August 2017 in Montréal, Québec, with a tentative release date of 2019 that quickly became 2020. The movie underwent re-shoots after the first cut was considered “unrealeasable” and since then, the fate of the film has been somewhat uncertain.

 

 

A big part of the issue with the re-shoots lies in the actors’ schedules. For one, Daisy Ridley and Tom Holland have had a busy few years. Between saving distant galaxies and the less distant Manhattan as Rey and Spiderman, both were unavailable for shooting for a number of months. When they returned, it seemed that making audiences believe either of them were in their early teens would be no small feat.

The real kicker of the saga is that the times have simply changed. In 2011, dystopian fiction was huge. The world was ending left, right and center! Katniss was volunteering for The Hunger Games, Tris was jumping on trains, Bella was… well we’re still not entirely sure what Bella was doing. Point is, the tidal wave of dystopia has since passed and it simply isn’t the same market that it once was. Allegiant, the third film adapted from the Divergent series, didn’t receive a great critical response and Rotten Tomatoes awarded it a meager 11%. Ouch. The final movie was scrapped, too.

A Chaos Walking film could have been a massive success back in the era of apocalypses, factions and romance-against-the-odds. Now, it may not have the same appeal. Fans of Ness’ work may fill cinema seats but the question of profit is sticky. Between re-shoots and the constant pushing back of the release date, Lionsgate may find themselves with long term consequences.

 

 

The good news is that fans remain hopeful that the film will eventually see the light of day. Plus, the constant change in release date means that traction is still there as audiences wait for a final deadline. If nothing else, the drama comes as a great excuse to re-read the series from the beginning.
