Another YA movie adaptation is set to hit theaters soon, and it stars (wait for it!) Chloe Moretz!

After appearing in the remake of Stephen King's Carrie and the upcoming film based on Gayle Forman's If I Stay, Chloe is set to star in the movie based on Rick Yancey's book, The 5th Wave. This was announced via Twitter recently.

Set in a dystopian world, Chloe stars as Cassie Sullivan who is one of the remaining survivors at the dawn of the 5th wave. In Rick's world, there are 5 waves. The first wave, darkness remains. On the 2nd, the lucky ones escape. On the 3rd, the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, survivors should only heed one rule: trust no one. During the 5th wave, Cassie is alone and running from Them—creatures who look like humans who kill anyone they see. She is determined to stay alone to survive, until (of course) she meets handsome guy Evan Walker.


Of course, romance has to be involved no matter how twisted the world is. The problem is Evan is mysterious and Cassie has to rescue her brother.

Aside from Chloe, two other stars have also been announced to appear in the movie.
