SPIDER-MAN: Homecoming star Tom Holland is in talks to join Star Wars actress Daisy Ridley in Doug Liman’s post-apocalyptic thriller Chaos Walking.

Based on the best-selling Yong Adult novel by Patrick Ness, the film would be set in a world where all women have been killed by a germ and all living creatures can hear one another’s thoughts in a stream of images, words and sounds called Noise.

Holland would play a boy who is forced to flee his town with his loyal dog and who comes across a strange sight: a girl (to be played by Ridley).

Oscar-winning screenwriter Charlie Kaufman (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) has worked on the script, as did Money Monster‘s Jamie Linden.

Holland made his feature debut with the tsunami drama The Impossible and has already made his superhero debut as Peter Parker in Captain America: Civil War. He has also signed up to star alongside Benedict Cumberbatch and Michael Shannon in the period drama The Current War.

Liman most recently completed work on Tom Cruise drug drama Mena, while Ridley is reprising her Star Wars character from The Force Awakens.
