The movie itself originally filmed all the way back in 2017, though reshoots didn't occur until 2019 due to the lead stars' other big movie commitments.

Chaos Walking is based on Patrick Ness' 2008 novel The Knife of Never Letting Go, and follows a young man named Todd Hewitt (Holland) in a planet called New World.

He discovers a young woman named Viola (Ridley), despite believing that all women had disappeared. Todd vows to protect her in this world, where all the men are affected by a force called 'the Noise'.

Chaos Walking is due for release on March 5, 2021.
