Nick Robinson (“Jurassic World,” “The Kings of Summer”) and British newcomer Alex Roe are in negotiations to join Chloe Grace Moretz in the film adaptation of Rick Yancey’s young adult sci-fi novel “The 5th Wave” at Sony Pictures.
Set on an Earth currently in the midst of a fifth wave of alien invasions, Moretz plays a sixteen-year-old girl named Cassie on the run trying to save her younger brother.
Robinson plays Zombie, a boy on which Cassie has a crush but who is now a ruthless paramilitary killer of aliens. Roe will play Evan, a boy who may have the key to the aliens’ weakness.
J Blakeson (“The Disappearance of Alice Creed”) helms from a script by Susannah Grant. Filming aims to begin at the end of September
