Lionsgate Looking Past HUNGER GAMES And Options Book Series CHAOS WALKING

By AMC April 24, 2012

Lionsgate is already looking for their next big franchise once the three Hunger Games movie are over with, and they've optioned the rights to the hot young adult series “Chaos Walking.”

They hired Charlie Kaufman to adapt the first book into a screenplay. According to Deadline, the books are about a “dystopian future with humans colonizing a distant earth-like planet. When an infection called the Noise suddenly makes all thought audible, privacy vanishes, chaos ensues, and a corrupt autocrat threatens to take control of the human settlements and wage war with the indigenous alien race. Only young Todd Hewitt holds the key to stopping planet wide-destruction.”

Kaufman currently finished a deal to write his own novel and is working on directing his script “Frank or Francis.”
