Lionsgate want to bring Patrick Ness' young adult book series, Chaos Walking, to the big screen... and according to Deadline, Charlie Kaufman will be adapting the first book, The Knife of Never Letting Go:

The Carnegie Medal winning book is set in a dystopian future with humans colonizing a distant earth-like planet. When an infection called the Noise suddenly makes all thought audible, privacy vanishes, chaos ensues, and a corrupt autocrat threatens to take control of the human settlements and wage war with the indigenous alien race. Only young Todd Hewitt holds the key to stopping planet wide-destruction. (Source)

WOW. Big news. Busy times ahead for Charlie, if all of these upcoming projects come to fruition. Frank or Francis, the untitled novel for Grand Central, maybe that "world leaders" film. (Or is the world leaders thing in fact a Jonze project, sans Charlie? I AM GETTING VERY CONFUSED.)
