Woo Hoo! We heard she was in the running and its very exciting for us (We enjoyed the book)to hear Chloe will play the lead role of Cassie in “The 5th Wave.” More about the book and her casting in the MTV article below.

5thwave

First came Jennifer. Then, Shailene. And now, it looks like Chloë Grace Moretz is about to become Hollywood’s next Literary It Girl — yet another actress-turned-superstar, thanks to a big-screen blockbuster based on a bestselling YA novel.

The news, via The Wrap, is that Moretz is set to star in the film adaptation of “The 5th Wave,” based on the alien-invasion thriller by Rick Yancey.

“The 5th Wave” is a new iteration of the dystopian trend that made “The Hunger Games” and “Divergent” such successes, only without the far-future setting. This time, the end of the world as we know it is happening in the world as we know it. It begins with the appearance of an alien spacecraft orbiting the earth. And then, the waves: first, an electromagnetic pulse that wipes out the power grid, crashes airplanes and throws everything into chaos. Second, a tsunami that destroys the world’s coastlines and drowns everyone who lives there. Third, an avian virus that kills 99 percent of the surviving members of the human race.

Moretz will play Cassie, the story’s teenage heroine, who wanders through the wasteland of post-invasion Ohio in hopes of finding her brother — and who fully intends to kill anyone who gets in her way.

Moretz is no stranger to films based on books. After playing the title role in last year’s reboot of Stephen King’s “Carrie,” she’ll be starring this summer in the highly anticipated (and profoundly tear-jerking) adaptation of “If I Stay,” another beloved novel, by author Gayle Forman.

And while the actress didn’t previously have a whole lot of love for the YA label — she recently told Entertainment Weekly that she sees young adult fiction as unserious and lacking in depth, inspiring an outcry on Twitter from fans who vehemently disagreed — her decision to take on yet another project from the teen literary oeuvre suggests that she might have had a change of heart.

As someone who first came on the scene playing an ultra-violent teen assassin in “Kick Ass,” the role of Cassie is the perfect way to keep up the bookish trend while simultaneously returning to her tough-girl roots.

Article: The New York Times Interview

While audiences are taking their seats for “The Library,” a new play at the Public Theater written by Scott Z. Burns and directed by Steven Soderbergh, its lead actress, Chloë Grace Moretz, is already onstage.

Playing a high school shooting victim who awakes in a hospital to confront conflicting remembrances of the event, the 17-year-old Ms. Moretz spends these 10 to 15 minutes before each show lying silently on a table, trying to stay in character and tune out the frantic theatergoers she can hear in the house.

“It’s kind of awkward,” Ms. Moretz said a few days ago, adding a sarcastic roll of her eyes. “You hear: ‘Oh, we didn’t get reservations tonight.’ ‘Dinner was $400.’ And I’m like, ‘Oh my God, dude, shut up.’ ”

This is about as much as teenage petulance as one can extract from Ms. Moretz, a preternaturally poised actress with a résumé of film credits — the superhero satire “Kick-Ass,” the period fantasy “Hugo,” a blood-soaked remake of “Carrie” — and a mature demeanor to rival performers twice her age.

In an entertainment industry populated by wild Mileys, run-amok Justins and forsaken Lindsays, where the arrival of one’s 18th birthday means it’s time to lose your inhibitions, your clothes or your relevance, Ms. Moretz may be able to break this dispiritingly familiar pattern.

Her collaborators on “The Library” say she is already astonishingly equipped to handle grown-up realities and ready to be trusted with significant artistic responsibilities.

“She’s so centered and levelheaded, and clear in what needs to be done,” said Mr. Soderbergh, the Oscar- and Emmy-winning director of “Traffic” and “Behind the Candelabra.”

“I’ve seen no indication that she places herself at the center of the process of working on the play,” he added. “She’s there to tell the story.”

As Ms. Moretz, who is making her stage debut in “The Library,” put it: “I’m very confident of myself. But coming into this, I was the most unconfident I’ve ever been, which made me excited.”

On an April afternoon, she was sitting in the Public’s upstairs restaurant (also called the Library), with her mother, Teri, and a publicist positioned a few tables away, while she compared herself to other people her age.

“Seventeen-year-olds deal with, like, emotional problems,” Ms. Moretz said. “They’re flighty, and they’re confused. Everything’s a process with them.”

“I’m not saying I’m not like that,” she continued. “I’m very much like that. I’m moody, and stuff happens, and Mom can definitely tell you that’s very true.” (From her seat, Teri Moretz nodded knowingly.)

What makes her different, Ms. Moretz said, is that she can distinguish “between my life and my job, and I never mix the two.”

Scans > 2013 > Dazed & Confused – November 2013 x 003

Chloe Moretz definitely knows how to get into character. The 16-year-old star of the upcoming Carrie remake transformed her look for the “dark arts” issue of Dazed & Confused magazine, looking worlds away from her usual bubbly, blonde self.
On the cover, the up-and-coming teen dons a short, Joan Jett-esque black wig and offsets her startlingly edgy new look with thick eyeliner and a steely gaze. The actress also switches up her style in a tweed-and-silk Chanel jacket and a Meadham Kirchhoff ruffled shirt.

But maybe it’s just a sign of growing up? During a previous interview with Glamour, the young actress revealed that she’s been “wearing a lot of all black” recently.
“I really love Winona Ryder — her look in the time right after Mermaids and Heathers, that first year of Johnny Depp and her,” she told the magazine. “They were the best couple ever — they’re like Romeo and Juliet!”

In a recent roundtable for Carrie, Moretz told reporters that she had to reach deep to find the right emotions to tap into to play her dark character of the bullied telekinetic teen with an intense Bible-thumping mom (played by Julianne Moore). The original 1976 version of the film starred Sissy Spacek as the titular teen and Piper Laurie as her mother.

“Everyone has something inside them that, if they want to bring it up every day, they could cry about it, they could be sad and live their life in just complete terror of your own feelings,” she explained. “And that was really what I had to bring up was all my vulnerabilities. All my vulnerabilities that I, even at fifteen, had learned to deal with and to put away and go, ok this is how you’re human and this is how you live everyday life without crying and stuff.”
The iconic prom scene, in particular — in which Carrie has a bucket full of pig’s blood dumped on her after she is crowned prom queen as a cruel joke — was particularly nerve-wracking to film, she said.

“It kind of felt like when you were about to drop off of one of those droppy rides, which is always scary because you know something is going to happen,” she said. “And I’m like, this is so crazy right now. And [I grabbed] Ansel Elgort’s hand (the actor plays jock Tommy Ross)… that wasn’t supposed to happen. We grabbed each other’s hands because we were both so scared.”
