Gone are the shackles of Spider-Man and Star Wars’ Rey in the first look image of Doug Liman’s sci-fi adventure, Chaos Walking featuring none other than Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley.
Based on the novel by A Monster Calls Patrick Ness titled The Knife of Never Letting Go, the premise for Chaos Walking reads, according to the book synopsis, Why wasn’t she killed by the germ like all the females on New World? Propelled by Todd’s gritty narration, readers are in for a white-knuckle journey in which a boy on the cusp of manhood must unlearn everything he knows in order to figure out who he truly is.
Holland plays Todd Hewitt, a boy who lives on the distant planet of New World with Ridley taking on the role of Viola Eade, a girl who may be the key to unlocking New World’s many-layered secrets but there is one problem, she does not speak.
Directed by American Made and The Edge of Tomorrow’s Doug Liman, the cast also includes Mads Mikkelsen as David Prentiss, the Mayor of Prentisstown, Demián Bichir as Ben Moore, Todd’s protective adoptive parent, Kurt Sutter as Cillian Boyd, Todd’s tough adoptive parent, Nick Jonas as David “Davy” Prentiss Jr., the Mayor’s son and a young soldier in his army who is fueled by jealousy over his father’s mentorship of Todd, his longtime rival and David Oyelowo as Aaron, a controversial militant figure in the New World.
We’re loving Ridley’s Blonde hair, wonder if she can tell us if Blondes really do have more fun?
