In their first tweet, the Chaos Walking official Twitter account released the upcoming dystopian film poster. It means we are getting that much closer to the release, which is currently January 22, 2021. The movie is based on the 2008 novel The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness, book one in the Chaos Walking series. The movie started to film in 2017 but had to do some extensive reshoots in 2019 that further pushed the release date.
