In the near future, Todd Hewitt has been brought up to believe that a viral germ has killed all women in a colony world and unleashed Noise, the special ability to read people's and animals' minds. Later, he comes upon a patch of silence and soon discovers the source of the silence: a mysterious woman named Viola Eade. On the run, they learn more about the true history of the New World.

This film is based on the book by Patrick Ness. It's been in development since 2011, when Lionsgate acquired the rights to the novel. It didn't start to gain serious traction until 2016, when Doug Liman signed on to direct and Daisy Ridley agreed to star. Principal photography began in August 2017 and ran until November of that year. The film reportedly requires substantial reshoots, significantly delaying it.
