Spider-Man Homecoming star Tom Holland and Star Wars The Force Awakens lead actress Daisy Ridley are confirmed for the upcoming Chaos Walking movie. This movie will be a young adult science fiction flick that tells the story of the last woman on Earth.
HollywoodReporter confirmed that the post-apocalyptic thriller featuring Holland and Ridley will be directed by Doug Liman. This Lionsgate movie will be released on March 1, 2019. This upcoming movie is based from Patrick Ness’ Chaos Walking trilogy.
Chaos Walking’s story is set in a post-apocalyptic world where all women have supposedly been wiped out by a germ. Holland takes the role of boy who is forced to escape his hometown. However, the boy meets a girl (Ridley) despite previous beliefs that they have been wiped out. More than just meeting an extinct creature in their world, the Chaos Walking world will also feature political drama between its factions in the story.
The plot of Holland and Ridley’s movie seems to follow the story of the first book of the Chaos Walking trilogy. Like most novel adaptations, it’s still unknown if the film will remain faithful to the source material.
Both Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley have been Hollywood darlings after their roles in major movie series. Holland starred as the young Peter Parker of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the Spider-Man Homecoming movie. Meanwhile, Daisy Ridley was Rey in Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie. Even though Ridley starred as a new character in Star Wars, she’s the apprentice of the long-time series protagonist, Luke Skywalker. So far, both actors have starred in a fictional world setting which could improve their Chaos Walking roles better.
For now, fans hoping to see this movie will still have to wait until early next year to see these two together on-screen.
