Chloe Moretz to ride The 5th Wave
Chloe Moretz looks set for the lead role in sci-fi movie The 5th Wave.
The Carrie and Kick-Ass actress is in final negotiations about signing up for the movie, which is being adapted from the young adult book by Rick Yancey, reported The Wrap.
The movie is set in the wake of a series of deadly alien attacks on Earth with teenager Cassie Sullivan, the part earmarked for Chloe, among the survivors.
She goes on the run and is trying to save her younger brother when she meets a man who may be her last hope.
The novel was published last year and is set to be a trilogy, meaning The 5th Estate could be a franchise for 17-year-old Chloe.
The film will be directed by J Blakeson.
