Actress being courted for potential trilogy…

TheWrap is hearing that J Blakeson (‘The Disappearance of Alice Creed’) is eyeing ‘Carrie’ and ‘Kick-Ass’ star Chloë Moretz for the lead in his upcoming sci-fi flick ‘The 5th Wave.’

Based on Rick Yancey’s young adult novel of the same name, ‘The 5th Wave’ centres on Cassie Sullivan, one of the few survivors left on Earth following four devastating waves of alien attacks. 16-year-old Cassie sets out to find her younger brother, and along the way, she meets a beguiling and mysterious boy who may be Cassie’s only hope for rescuing her brother – or even saving herself.

GK Films will co-produce the adaptation with Tobey Maguire and his Material Pictures banner, with Andrea Giannetti and Hannah Minghella of GK Films overseeing development.
