Filming for Chaos Walking, starring none other than Daisy Ridley and Tom Holland, has officially begun. Directed by Doug Liman (who almost directed the cursed Gambit movie), the movie is based on the YA series of the same name.
The Chaos Walking trilogy by Patrick Ness tells the story of a dystopian world without women and where all living creatures can hear each other’s thoughts. One day, Todd Hewitt (Tom Holland) comes across a girl named Viola (Daisy Ridley), and the two of them must navigate their way through a world that is on the brink of war.
This has all the makings of yet another franchise, which is interesting since Ridley and Holland are already headlining some major movie franchises at the moment. (see our Spider-Man: Homecoming and Star Wars: The Force Awakens reviews)
I’m actually surprised Lionsgate managed to cast them, given how intense their obligations to Star Wars and the MCU must be. Nevertheless, it’ll be interesting to see what the chemistry between the two will be like.
