Lionsgate Adapts “Chaos Walking” Trilogy

Lionsgate has scored worldwide rights to develop, produce and distribute a film series based on Patrick Ness’ award-winning, best-selling young adult novel trilogy “Chaos Walking”.

The story is set in a dystopian future when humans have colonised a distant earth-like planet. When an infection called the Noise suddenly makes all thought audible, privacy vanishes in an instant.

In the ensuing chaos, a corrupt autocrat threatens to take control of the human settlements and wage war with the indigenous alien race, and only young Todd Hewitt holds the key to stopping planet wide-destruction.

Doug Davison’s Quadrant Pictures will produce these film adaptations.
