Scream‘s Liev Schreiber, pictured right, is in final negotiations to play the villain opposite Chloe Moretz in Sony’s sci-fi movie The 5th Wave, TheWrap writes.
“Moretz stars as Cassie Sullivan, who survives four waves of deadly attacks against the Earth’s population. On the run to save her younger brother, she meets a mysterious young man (Roe) who may become her final hope.”
J Blakeson (The Disappearance of Alice Creed) is directing from a script by Susannah Grant (Erin Brockovich), who adapted Rick Yancey’s bestselling novel.
The film co-stars Nick Robinson as Ben Parish, aka Zombie, as well as Alex Roe as Evan Walker. Schreiber is nearing a deal to play the villain, Vosch, a high-ranking military official, says the site.
