The 5th Wave is an upcoming American science fiction film directed by J Blakeson and written by Susannah Grant based on the 2013 novel of same name by Rick Yancey. The film stars Chloë Grace Moretz, Nick Robinson, Alex Roe, Maika Monroe, and Liev Schreiber.

Development of The 5th Wave began in March 2012 when Columbia Pictures picked up the film rights to the trilogy with Graham King's production company GK Films and Tobey Maguire's Material Pictures. Filming took place in Atlanta, Georgia from October 2014 to January 2015. It is set to be released on January 15, 2016.



In March 2012, Columbia Pictures picked up the film rights to the trilogy with Graham King and Tobey Maguire attached as producers.[8][9] On April 15, 2014, it was officially announced that Chloë Grace Moretz will star as Cassie Sullivan, and that J Blakeson will direct from the script of Susannah Grant.[1][10] Nick Robinson and Alex Roe would be joining the film as Ben Parish and Evan Walker.[2] Liev Schreiber would play the villain in the film.[4] On August 11, Maika Monroe was cast as Ringer.[3] The following months, Zackary Arthur, Tony Revolori, Ron Livingston, Maggie Siff and Talitha Bateman joined the film.[5][6][7]


Principal photography began on October 18, 2014, in Atlanta, Georgia.[11][12] Three months later, on January 11, a planned explosion of a bus in downtown Macon, Georgia for the film went awry when it spread wider than planned, blowing out windows on the north side of Cotton Street, and leaving soot on the brick buildings as well. The production company promised to cover all damages caused by the 3:45am incident.[13] The production officially ended on January 17, 2015.[14]


In April 2015, it was revealed that Henry Jackman would be composing the music for the film.[15]


Columbia Pictures had originally set the film for a January 29, 2016, release.[16] On April 30, 2015, they pushed the release date forward to January 15, 2016.[17]
