Nick Jonas cast in Chaos Walking alongside Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley

Nick Jonas cast in Chaos Walking alongside Tom Holland and Daisy Ridleyā€¯

The story is about people colonizing a planet where almost all of the women have been killed off and the rest of the living things suffer from some kind of telepathic virus called The Noise. Todd Hewitt (Holland), a young man who feels out of place within his town, discovers there is in fact a woman, Viola (Ridley) - and she may hold the key to unlocking the secrets of this society.

The film is based on Patrick Ness' book "Chaos Walking: The Knife of Never Letting Go", which was published in 2008 as the first in a trilogy.

Kurt Sutter, the inked and eloquent writer/producer who brought Shakespearean pathos to the brutal world of motorcycle gangs in Sons of Anarchy, has joined the cast of Chaos Walking, the new sci-fi thriller from Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow, Jumper). Davy is a young soldier who becomes jealous of the mentorship between his father and long-time rival Todd. Allison Shearmur, Doug Davison, and Erwin Stoff are the producers.

Jonas, known for his work as a Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter (his third solo album, Last Year Was Complicated, was released in June 2016), has begun to build up a notable acting career. The screenplay will be written by Charlie Kaufman, Lindsey Beers, John Lee Hancock, and Gary Spinelli ("Mena"). He previously starred in the Sundance hit Goat.

Chaos Walking is due in theaters March 1, 2019. He is repped by WME.
