Lionsgate to Turn CHAOS WALKING Series by Patrick Ness into A Film Series!!
Alli Shearmur, Lionsgate’s president of production and development who will be overseeing the books’ transition to film, said, “Although these stories are set in a critical time in the future, they speak volumes about what is happening all over the world today, and about the power of young people to challenge the status quo and change the course of our future.” Added Lionsgate’s co-COO and president Joe Drake, “These are books, much like The Hunger Games, that we feel truly beg to be brought to life on film. ” The Departed producer Doug Davison will take on the project through his company Quadrant Pictures."
Book One Synopsis:
"Prentisstown isn't like other towns. Everyone can hear everyone else's thoughts in an overwhelming, never-ending stream of Noise. Just a month away from the birthday that will make him a man, Todd and his dog, Manchee -- whose thoughts Todd can hear too, whether he wants to or not -- stumble upon an area of complete silence. They find that in a town where privacy is impossible, something terrible has been hidden -- a secret so awful that Todd and Manchee must run for their lives.
But how do you escape when your pursuers can hear your every thought?"
