Tom Holland looks as if he is ready to take on the role of young Nathan Drake; with Ridley sporting a different hair color than we are used to for the ‘Star Wars’ star.
The film is being directed by ‘Edge of Tomorrow’ helmer Doug Liman. Although, Robert Zemeckis was at one time attached to direct the project, with big-time writer Charlie Kaufman writing the first draft of the screenplay. The film will also star Mads Mikkelsen, Nick Jonas, David Oyelowo, Demián Bichir, and Kurt Sutter. –Jackson Hayes
Here is the synopsis of The Knife of Never Letting Go:
Todd Hewitt is the only boy in a town of men. Ever since the settlers were infected with the Noise germ, Todd can hear everything the men think, and they hear everything he thinks. Todd is just a month away from becoming a man, but in the midst of the cacophony, he knows that the town is hiding something from him — something so awful Todd is forced to flee with only his dog, whose simple, loyal voice he hears too. With hostile men from the town in pursuit, the two stumble upon a strange and eerily silent creature: a girl. Who is she? Why wasn’t she killed by the germ like all the females on New World? Propelled by Todd’s gritty narration, readers are in for a white-knuckle journey in which a boy on the cusp of manhood must unlearn everything he knows in order to figure out who he truly is.
