Director Doug Liman’s upcoming sci-fi flick Chaos Walking sounds like it’s living up to its title.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the film — which has already cost Lionsgate $100 million — has “turned out so poorly it was deemed unreleasable by executives who watched initial cuts last year, according to current and former employees.”
Chaos Walking is based on The Knife of Never Letting Go, the first book in a trilogy of young adult sci-fi novels written by Patrick Ness. Lionsgate bought the rights to trilogy in hopes of turning the series into its next Hunger Games. The film, which stars Tom Holland, Daisy Ridley and Mads Mikkelsen, is currently undergoing reshoots.
Chaos Walking doesn’t have a release date, but Lionsgate aims to release it sometime in 2020.
