The rumors have been swirling for about a week now, but Sony Pictures has just confirmed that Chloe Grace Moretz will take on the role of Cassie in the movie adaptation of Rick Yancey’s THE 5TH WAVE.
In THE 5TH WAVE, mankind has nearly been destroyed by the first four waves of an alien invasion. With no where to go and no one left to trust, Cassie goes on a desperate search to save her brother as the fifth wave begins. Along the way, she’ll have to break her cardinal rule and put her trust in a total stranger who may be her last hope.
Here’s a quote on Chloe’s involvement from the team at Song Pictures:
Commenting on the announcement, Minghella said, “Chloe is the perfect Cassie and we’re excited to be building this movie around her. It’s been a great experience working with Chloe on several films, most recently The Equalizer. She’s a phenomenal actress and embodies the heart, strength and determination that make Cassie such a compelling character. J Blakeson’s vision for the film is smart, edgy and faithful to the book, and will launch the franchise in a fresh and dynamic way.”
We think she’s ready for this role, don’t you?
