Chloe Moretz cast in The 5th Wave. The casting of Chloe Grace Moretz in The 5th Wave answers the question of who will star in the  J Blakeson directed film. Chloe Moretz will star as Cassie Sullivan, “who survives four waves of deadly attacks against the Earth’s population” and is now on the run.

On the people behind The 5th Wave film:

Sony is co-financing and distributing…produced by Graham King’s GK Films and Tobey Maguire’s Material Pictures…[based on] Rick Yancey’s popular novel…from a script by Susannah Grant…GK Films principal Graham King will produce with Tobey Maguire and Matthew Plouffe of Material Pictures. Sony executives Hannah Minghella and Andrea Giannetti are overseeing the project for the studio.

On the plot of the book The 5th Wave:

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.
