Patrick Ness’ CHAOS WALKING Headed to Film

The latest book adaptation news (from Variety) is that Patrick Ness’ Chaos Walking is coming to film, possibly to be directed by Robert Zemeckis.

The Chaos Walking trilogy — comprised of the books The Knife of Never Letting Go, The Ask and the Answer and Monsters of Men and a trio of short stories — is a young adult dystopian science fiction series in which all living beings can hear each other’;s thoughts in a stream of images, words, and sounds called Noise. The books have their young protagonists dealing with several moral issues and the series has been praised for its treatment of themes, which include gender issues and the gray area between good and evil.

Right now, Variety reports that Charlie Kaufman is writing the script and Robert Zemeckis may direct the film.
