Set on a distant planet where everyone is telepathic . . .
The Chaos Walking trilogy of young adult novels by Patrick New will be made into three feature films. The films will be produced by Doug Davison (The Departed) through his company Quadrant Pictures for Lionsgate.
The critically lauded series is set in a dystopian world where humanity has colonized a distant planet like Earth. One day, a “germ” spread by aliens makes all people hear the thoughts of others. This leads to chaos as some try to use their new abilities to dominate other people. Only the young Todd Hewitt can prevent the total destruction of this new world . . .
