Featured Roles for ‘Panicked Family’ on ‘The 5th Wave’


The new Sci-Fi Film Series ‘The 5th Wave’ is holding a casting call for a featured family.

The film’s production staff is looking to cast a family of 4 or 5 which includes a mom, dad and 2 or 3 kids between the ages of 8 and 14 to play a “panicked family” on a scene that will be filming in Atlanta, Georgia this coming Friday.

‘The 5th Wave’ is a new film series that will be coming out in theaters in 2016. The film will be based on the alien invasion story written by Rick Yancey.  Yancey’s book, ‘The 5th Wave’ spent over 20 weeks on the New York Times best sellers list and told the story of a teenage girl living in a post-apocalyptic world.

Chloë Grace Moretz (‘Kick Ass‘) stars as one of the survivors who are now fighting for their lives. In the story, aliens have attacked. The world has gone through 4 waves of alien attacks and now the 5th wave is upon them. Chloe’s character, Cassie Sullivan has been separated from her brother and must now find him before the coming attack. Cassie is joined by a mysterious named Evan Walker who is played by Alex Roe . ‘The 5th Wave‘ will also star Liev Schreiber  and Nick Robinson as ‘Zombie’. The film is backed by Sony Pictures and being executive produced by Toby Maguire.

The movie recently began production in Atlanta Georgia and will be filming into the fall.
