Doctor Strange, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Hannibal star Mads Mikkelsen is eyeing to join Doug Liman’s upcoming sci-fi thriller CHAOS WALKING, starring Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley.

Based on Patrick Ness’s popular YA novel, which is set at Lionsgate. The film takes place on the New World planet infected by “The Noise”, a virus which inflicts immersive visions of ones’ every thought. This drives many mad until Todd (Holland) makes a hidden, silent discovery: there is a girl named Viola (Ridley), who may be the key to unlocking New World’s many layered secrets.

If Mikkelsen does joins, he would play the cruel Mayor of Prentisstown, a vigilant keeper of his own secrets.

Liman directs from a script by Charlie Kaufman, Lindsey Beers, John Lee Hancock, and Gary Spinelli.  Allison Shearmur, Erwin Stoff, and Doug Davison produce.

Production is set to begin shooting later this summer in Montréal, Canada.

Mikkelsen will be seen next in the survival thriller Arctic from director Joe Penna.
