GK Films has acquired the film rights to Rick Yancey's young adult sci-fi novel trilogy "The 5th Wave" which they will co-produce with Tobey Maguire's Material Pictures reports Variety.
The story follows a teenage girl who survives an alien invasion only to then search for her brother, who may or may not have been abducted by human-looking extra-terrestrials. She is helped by a boy who might also be an alien in disguise.
Maguire, Matthew Plouffe, Graham King and Tim Headington will produce. Sony Pictures will likely co-finance and distribute.
