January 2016 Release Date Set for THE 5TH WAVE

We have a release date for the movie adaptation of Rick Yancey‘s The 5th Wave.  It’s January 29, 2016.

Sounds like a long ways away, but when it comes to making movies, a decent amount of time is needed to create magic on screen.  And this movie needs that time.

Directed by J. Blakeson from a screenplay by Susannah Grant, The 5th Wave stars Chloe Grace Moretz. In it, four waves of increasingly deadly attacks have left most of Earth decimated. Against a backdrop of fear and distrust, 16-year-old Cassie is on the run, desperately trying to save her younger brother. As she prepares for the inevitable and lethal 5th wave, Cassie meets a young man who may become her final hope.

By the time the movie is out, the third and final book of the series will have been out, and thus, fans should be ready and excited to see Chloe Grace Moretz, Nick Robinson, and Alex Roe bring the characters to life.
