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.

Daisy appeared in a shining dress and a new haircut to recieve her Choice Movie: Breakout Star award during the 2016 Teen Choice Awards on July 31 in Inglewood, California. Congratulations! Photos from last night can now be found in our gallery, thanks to Marlies for her donation.
