The filming of Chaos Walking began in the summer of 2017, and the same November of that year we saw a first image with Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley, its brand new protagonists. However, problems did not take long to shake the production of this film based on the novel The Knife in the Hand by Patrick Ness, author of A Monster Comes to See who is currently in charge of the script for a new version of The Lord of the Rings. flies directed by Luca Guadagnino.
Once Lionsgate considered the first version of Chaos Walking (which was directed by Doug Liman and had come to count among its writers the unclassifiable Charlie Kaufman) as “inestrenable”, the studio demanded reshoots, and Fede Álvarez was at the forefront of them. . After spending a hell of post-production, however, it was announced that Chaos Walking would finally be released sometime in 2021, and the first poster for the film has just been released.

Thus, three years after the start of filming (when Holland and Ridley are already established stars thanks to Spider-Man and Star Wars) it seems that this science fiction film will finally hit theaters. His story is set in the distant future and on a planet allegedly ravaged by a virus that has extinguished women and given men the ability to read the thoughts of other men and animals. Everything changes when Todd Hewitt (Holland) meets a young woman from another planet (Viola, played by Ridley), and begins to discover that her entire life could have been a hoax.
In addition to the mentioned actors, in the cast of Chaos Walking we also find Nick Jonas, Cynthia Erivo, Óscar Janeada, David Oyelowo and Mads Mikkelsen, who could soon succeed Johnny Depp as Grindelwald in the third installment of Fantastic beasts. Until now, the premiere of Chaos Walking was set for January 22, 2021, but that decision was made before the COVID-19 crisis, so we will have to wait a little longer. The Doug Liman movie, after all, has gotten us used to it by now.
