‘Chaos Walking’ Gets Release Date

After almost three years in development hell, Chaos Walking starring Tom Holland (Spider-Man: Far From Home) and Daisy Ridley (Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker) now has a release date set for January 22, 2021 by Lionsgate.

Principle photography under director Doug Liman was completed in November ’17 and in the years since has lingered due to extensive re-shoots that were challenging due to the stars’ busy schedules. The re-shoots, which commenced in April 2019 with Fede Álvarez directing them, lasted through May of that year and added an additional $15 million to the film’s budget.

Based on based on Patrick Ness’ 2008 novel The Knife of Never Letting Go, the first part of the Chaos Walking trilogy, the premise follows Todd Hewitt (Holland) who in the near future has been brought up to believe that a pathogen has killed all women in a colony world and unleashed “The Noise,” the special ability to hear people’s and animals’ minds. Later, he comes upon a patch of silence and soon discovers the source of the silence: a mysterious woman named Viola Eade (Ridley) – the first he has ever met. On the run, they learn more about the true history of the New World.

Since Mark was four years old he has always loved the horror genre, even when his mother would be a good parent and not let him watch such films. It was when he would sneak into the Horror section at the video store called Tommy K's that he would see all of the VHS covers of classics like Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street. During his time as a journalism major and news staff writer at Southern CT State University, he had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing paranormal investigator Lorraine Warren before a seminar in 2009 at the Lyman Center on campus.
