Chaos Walking Archives - Daisy Ridley Source — Your first source for all things Daisy Ridley

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – Chaos Walking, Doug Liman’s big-budget adaptation of the best-selling YA novel of the same name by Patrick Ness, is the latest big-budget movie to undergo significant reshoots, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

And, because of complicated scheduling issues with stars Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley, the reshoots could very likely force Lionsgate to push back the movie’s release date, which is currently slated for March 1, 2019.

Lionsgate is spending between $90 million and $100 million on the pic, an ambitious sci-fi thriller that the studio hopes will launch a franchise that can stand out amid superhero movies, remakes and sequel tentpoles.

The “additional photography” is expected to last two or three weeks but will not take place until the end of this year or early next, sources tell THR. That marks an unusual delay, given the film finished shooting principal photography last November, but insiders point out that the delay is because the movie’s two stars are so in demand.

Holland is due to shoot the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming, while Ridley will be at work on Star Wars: Episode IX, both of which take up the summer months. Regardless, it would be a tight turnaround to make the current release date and insiders are planning, at this stage, on the opening date to shift. Lionsgate had no comment.

DEADLINE – Doug Liman’s Chaos Walking starring Tom Holland, Daisy Ridley just got pegged for a release on March 1, 2019 by Lionsgate. The sci-fi adventure film, based on the book from Carnegie Award-winning author Patrick Ness, is about a guy (Holland) who lives on the distant planet of New World—a new hope for humanity until struck by “The Noise,” a virus which inflicts immersive visions of ones’ every thought. The cacophony drives many mad until Todd makes a hidden, silent discovery: there is a girl named Viola (Ridley), who may be the key to unlocking New World’s many layered secrets. Together, the two unlikely companions are forced on a white-knuckle adventure into an unexplored planet – trying to escape and hide in an environment where all thought is heard, all movement seen –as they both discover the truth about the lives they left behind and the spectacular world they’ve learned to call home.

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – Star Wars: The Force Awaken star Daisy Ridley has signed on to star in Lionsgate’s YA adaptation Chaos Walking.

Doug Liman is directing the post-apocalyptic thriller, which takes place in a world where there are no women and all living creatures can hear one another’s thoughts in a stream of images, words and sounds called Noise.

Lionsgate picked up the rights to Patrick Ness’ best-selling young-adult trilogy in 2011. Oscar-winning screenwriter Charlie Kaufman (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) adapted the book, and Jamie Linden (Money Monster) penned a draft.

Doug Davison, who produced the Liman-directed Tom Cruise starrer Mena, is producing alongside Allison Shearmur (Rogue One, Cinderella).

Before Star Wars, Ridley was a relative unknown. Since starring in the Lucasfilm and Disney project, she’s booked several other films, including Ophelia with Naomi Watts and drama The Lost Wife. She also recently shot Star Wars: Episode VIII. She’s repped by CAA and Sloane, Offer.
