After a long wait, Lionsgate has finally announced a January 22, 2021 release date for the science-fiction film starring Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley.

Chaos Walking, which is based on Patrick Ness’ Chaos Walking: The Knife of Never Letting Go, started shooting in 2017 and it was supposed to be released on March 1, 2019, but the opening was set back due to reshoots.

According to Lionsgate, the dystopian film is about “two unlikely companions [who] embark on a perilous adventure through the badlands of an unexplored planet as they try to escape a dangerous and disorienting reality; where all inner thoughts are seen and heard by everyone.”

Holland (Spider-Man: Far From Home) and Ridley (Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker) will play lead characters, Todd Hewitt and Viola Eade. Cynthia Erivo, Mads Mikkelsen, David Oyelowo, Demián Bichir, and Nick Jonas will also star in the film.
