Lionsgate reels in ANOTHER dystopian series film rights.

Lionsgate knows what they're doing with the dystopian novels. On October 3, The Hollywod Reporter revealed that Lionsgate, (the company behind The Hunger Games films) will adapt yet another series called 'Choas Walking.'

Lionsgate, already in production on the high-profile adapation of book sensation The Hunger Games, has picked up the feature rights of another award-winning young adult novel series, Chaos Walking byPatrick Ness.
Some critics have compared the dark tone to Hunger Games, something not lost on Lionsgate. 
“Apart from the story elements, the world in the stories is so vividly imagined,” said Lionsgate co-COO and motion picture group president Joe Drake. “These are books, much like The Hunger Games, that we feel truly beg to be brought to life on film."
