Filmmaker eyes alien invasion thriller.
London based writer/director J Blakeson (‘The Disappearance of Alice Creed’) has reportedly entered into talks with Sony Pictures to step behind the camera for the sci-fi feature ‘The 5th Wave.’

Based on Rick Yancey’s young adult sci-fi novel of the same name, the film centres on Cassie, a 16 year-old girl searching for her brother after an alien invasion. As she wanders through the wasteland of post-invasion Ohio, she is helped by a beguiling and mysterious boy who might be an alien in disguise.

Screenwriter/producer/director Susannah Grant (‘The Soloist,’ ‘Catch And Release,’ ‘Erin Brockovich’) is on board to pen the script, with Tobey Maguire, Graham King, Tim Headington, Denis O’Sullivan and Matt Plouffe producing.
