David Oyelowo is set to be a part of Doug Liman’s post-apocalyptic thriller “Chaos Walking” at Lionsgate. He joins a project that boasts an impressive cast roster including Tom Holland, Daisy Ridley, Nick Jonas and Mads Mikkelsen.
Based on Patrick Ness’ novel, the story is set on a planet colony where almost all women have been killed by a virus and all living creatures are going insane after being struck by The Noise – immersive visions of one’s every thought.
Holland plays a guy who discovers a girl (Ridley) who may be the key to understanding their New World. Oyelowo will play a villain.
Ness, Charlie Kaufman, Lindsey Beer, Gary Spinelli and John Lee Hancock all worked on the script. Allison Shearmur, Erwin Stoff and Doug Davison are producing. The film opens March 1st 2019.
