Kids and Teens for a sci-fi film ‘The 5th Wave’
Another teen / young adult sci fi trilogy is in the making. ‘The 5th Wave‘ is in production in the Atlanta, Georgia area.
The film’s casting directors have put out a casting call for Football playing teens and paintball playing kids. The film is looking for boys 16 to 18 who play football as well as boys and girls 9 to 14 who have played paintball before.
‘The 5th Wave‘ will be based on the Rick Yancey novel of the same name. ‘The 5th Wave‘ will star Chloë Grace Moretz as Cassie Sullivan, a teen who survives the previous 4 waves of Alien attacks against the planet and is now in now in for the 5th one. Cassie becomes separated from her younger brother and ends up on a dangerous journey to find him. Along the way, she meets a mysterious young man named Evan Walker played by Alex Roe who may be her final hope. ‘The 5th Wave‘ will also star Liev Schreiber as the villian and Nick Robinson as ‘Zombie’.
According to The Wrap, Lynn Harris is producing with GK Films as well as Tobey Maguire and Matthew Plouffe. The project is backed by Sony Pictures and Hannah Minghella is overseeing the film for Sony Studios.
