By Maryann Yin 

Knife of Never Letting Go (GalleyCat)Two actors have signed on for the Chaos Walking film adaptation: Daisy Ridley and Tom Holland. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Doug Liman will serve as the director.

The story for this project comes from Patrick Ness’ young adult trilogy. Altogether, he wrote three novels and three short stories for this series.

Here’s more from Empire Magazine: “Ness’ trilogy – The Knife Of Never Letting Go, The Ask And The Answer, and Monsters Of Men – finds humankind in a dark future, colonising a distant planet after the Earth has been ruined. When an infection called the Noise strikes, all thoughts become audible and chaos follows. A corrupt autocrat takes the chance to seize control of the human settlements in order to launch a strike on native alien race the Spackles, blaming them for the infection that’s apparently killing human women.” (via Collider)
