Daisy Ridley isn’t quite sick of travelling to galaxies far far away just yet, as she’s signed up for another blockbuster sci-fi franchise in waiting.
The Star Wars’ actress has joined the cast of Lionsgate’s upcoming adaptation of Patrick Ness’ Chaos Walking, a young adult sci-fi series set in a dystopian world where all living creatures can hear each other’s thoughts.
A large portion of Chaos Walking is focused around Prentisstown, the only human settlement on the planet New World which is solely populated by males. Just imagine.
It’s safe to assume the film adaptation will focus on the first book in the trilogy, The Knife Of Never Letting Go, which centres on Todd Hewitt as he’s forced to escape his home and encounters a girl called Viola in the swamp – the role Daisy has most likely signed up for.
The film is set to be directed by Doug Liman who previously helmed the underrated sci-fi flick Edge Of Tomorrow and The Bourne Identity, with production set to begin in 2017.
Daisy certainly isn’t settling on the Star Wars franchise, as she’s also set to reunite with The Force Awakens director JJ Abrams for the supernatural drama Kolma too.
