Help comes in the form of Ben (Nick Robinson), but Cassie must quickly figure out if she can trust him, or if he’s one of “the Others.” Liev Schreiber, Maria Bello and Maggie Siff also star in this intense sci-fi thriller based on the YA novel.

Wavers how excited does this make you?

Chloe Grace Moretz talks ‘The 5th Wave’ with Barnes and Noble!

Our Cassie, Chloe Grace Moretz talked with Barnes and Noble about The 5th Wave, If I Stay and more.

You’re starring in The 5th Wave next, an adaptation of a YA series by Rick Yancey, and spent a lot of time on-set with If I Stay author Gayle Forman—has this inspired you to get writing?

I try to, but because I’m 17 I think my brain can’t handle sitting and writing one thing, so I’ll literally start a project of writing something and I get completely sidetracked and I CANNOT FINISH IT. So I think I have to give myself a couple of years and try.

What are some of your favorite YA books?

I enjoy books that aren’t really YA in that sense, so when I read The 5th Wave it’s a very un-YA YA book, and the same with If I Stay, and these are books that hang under the label of YA but aren’t really—they deal with bigger problems and bigger emotions than most YA books. My favorite novel in general is Wuthering Heights.

See Chloe as Mia in If I Stay on August 22 and in The 5th Wave on January 29, 2016.

Page to Premiere shares 5 Reasons Why Chloe Grace Moretz will Rock the Role of Cassie in ‘THE 5TH WAVE’!

20140421-182950.jpg

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.

Why do you think Chloe will be great as Cassie? Share your thoughts below.
