Earlier it was announced that Chloe Grace Moretz would be playing the role of Cassie Sullivan in the adaptation of Rick Yancey’s The 5th Wave.Variety is reporting that Tye Sheridan, Nick Robinson and Mitchell Hope are scheduled to test for the role of Evan with Chloe Grace Moretz(Cassie) this weekend. They give no information as to what character the guys are auditioning for but it is either Evan Walker or Ben Parish. I am leaning closer to Evan because Cassie spends a lot of time with him.
Sony continues the search for potential new franchises, with one possibility being sci-fi pic “The Fifth Wave” starring Chloe Moretz, which is gearing up for production with a handful of young actors expected to test with Moretz this weekend.
Sources tell Variety that among those expected to test are “Mud” thesp Tye Sheridan, “Jurassic World’s” Nick Robinson and Mitchell Hope. Insiders add more could be added but the list isn’t expected to grow by that much.
What do you guys think?
