Patrick Ness fans have even more to celebrate than his new book (which is amazing). The Wrap says that Robert Zemeckis is in negotiations to direct a film version of Chaos Walking for Lionsgate studios.
Ness wrote the Chaos Walking trilogy in such a cinematic way that it should come as no surprise that it has been optioned for a movie. His writing is stellar and makes the entire world appear before your eyes. Getting a director like Zemeckis would make this even more of a contender to be a success following Hunger Games.
Thanks to Book Riot for the heads up.
