Robert Zemeckis is in the process of negotiations to direct the Charlie Kaufman-penned YA adaptation Chaos Walking for Lionsgate. No deal has been officially made for what would mark Zemeckis’ next live-action pic following last year’s Flight. Patrick Ness authored the original YA lit trilogy about an infection that renders all thought audible in a dystopian future where humans have colonized an alien planet. Doug Davison will produce for Quadrant Pictures with Allison Shearmur.
