New Sci-Fi Trilogy ‘The Fifth Wave’ Now Casting in Atlanta

The 5th Wave‘, a new sci-fi film trilogy is filming the first film in the Atlanta area and they are casting paid movie extras.

The new movie will be an alien invasion series that follows a young girl as she searches for her brother and kicks some alien butt along the way. Set in a post-apocalyptic world where aliens have come and they are not that friendly. 4 waves of attacks have devastated the planet and now everyone must brace for the coming 5th wave of attacks which may finish off the survivors. Through the attacks,

The films will be based on the book written by Rick Yancey. Seems that aliens have been watching and waiting for centuries, and now they are getting up close and personal. ‘The 5th Wave‘ is based on the Rick Yancey book also called ‘The 5th Wave‘ which spent 20 weeks on the New York Times best sellers list. The film stars Chloë Grace Moretz (‘Kick Ass‘) as a teen alien invasion survivor, Cassie Sullivan.

The movie recently began production in Atlanta Georgia and will be filming into the fall in the area. ‘The 5th Wave‘ is backed by Sony Pictures and is currently scheduled for a 2016 theatrical release.

The popular book has some great reader reviews on Amazon and according to Amazon…..

After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one.

Now, it’s the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth’s last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie’s only hope for rescuing her brother–or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up.
