Chaos Walking

Chaos Walking

Chaos Walking much like the erstwhile X-Men spinoff New Mutants, the sci-fi blockbuster Chaos Walking has been through Chaos Walking the ringer. Despite starring two of the most bankable young actors on the planet (Daisy Ridley and Tom Holland), the film was deemed “unreleasable” in its original form, prompting extensive reshoots. Principal photography wrapped in November 2017, followed by reshoots in 2019, and now it’s finally scheduled for release in 2021. Oh, Lionsgate just released the first trailer, so we actually know what this movie looks like! The answer? Pretty great!

Chaos Walking was adapted from The Knife of Never Letting Go, the first volume in a critically-acclaimed YA trilogy by Patrick Ness. The books take place on a planet populated by human colonists and native aliens, and the main character is a boy named Todd. A mysterious pathogen killed all the women on the planet, and Todd’s life is changed forever when he meets Viola, the first girl he’s ever seen. (Both characters are kids in the books, but the movie aged them up to be young adults.) The planet also has one other bizarre effect on its human colonists: Every man can “see” each other’s thoughts. It’s a tricky concept for a screen adaptation, and it didn’t help that director Doug Liman has a history of troublesome film shoots.
