Alien: Covenant star Demian Bichir has joined Lionsgate’s upcoming sci-fi thriller adaption CHAOS WALKING.

Based on Carnegie Award-winning novelist Patrick Ness’ popular YA trilogy, the film will be directed by Doug Liman and stars Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley.

Chaos Walking centers on Todd Hewitt (Holland) who lives on the distant planet of New World that is struck by “The Noise”, a virus that inflicts immersive visions on one’s every thought. The cacophony drives many mad until Todd discovers that a girl named Viola (Ridley) might be the key to unlocking New World’s many layered secrets. Together, the two unlikely companions are forced on a white-knuckle adventure into an unexplored planet as they both discover the truth about the lives they left behind and the spectacular world they’ve learned to call home. Bichir will play Ben, Todd’s protective adoptive father.

The script is adapted by Patrick Ness, Charlie Kaufman and John Lee Hancock. Allison Shearmur and Doug Davison produce.

Chaos Walking hits theaters on March 1, 2019.
