It was very recently announced that Chloe Grace Moretz will play the role of Cassie Sullivan in the film adaptation of Rick Yancey’s The 5th Wave.
Page to Premiere has come up with a list of 5 reasons why Chloe will rock the role of Cassie in The 5th Wave.
Check out a couple below:
She knows how to give (and take) a hit:
One of Chloë’s first starring roles was in the action film, “Kick Ass,” where she played ‘Hit Girl,’ a prepubescent, purple-wig-wearing superhero, who curses like a sailor and fights like an adrenaline-fueled ninja.
In “The 5th Wave,” Cassie uses many a punch and kick to fight her way out of some tricky situations. Chances are, the movie will also lean heavily towards action sequences, à la other dystopian films of today, and I’m sure Chloë will have no troubling handling them in a way that’s as genuine and kick-butt as in the book.
She can handle the emotional stuff:
Chloë isn’t just an action hero; she can bring it when it comes to the emotional side of a character as well.
In 2010, she starred as a conflicted, blood-thirsty vampire in the dark thriller, “Let Me In,” which called for a variety of different dimensions and emotions to come together in one cohesive role.
Her darker turn in “Carrie” also proves she can handle the tougher aspects “The 5th Wave” film will surely demand of her character. In lesser hands, Cassie could come across as nothing more than another Katniss rip-off. But with Chloë at the helm, expect to be wowed.
Head on over to Page to Premiere to see the rest of the reasons.
