Tobey Maguire and his Material Pictures production company is set to produce a new young adult sci-fi film project called The 5th Wave. The film idea was picked up by GK Films and comes from author Rick Yancy, who will release a trilogy of books that the film would be based on.
According to Variety, the "series follows a teenage girl who survives an alien invasion only to then search for her brother, who may or may not have been abducted by human-looking extra-terrestrials. There's also a romantic angle, as the heroine is helped by a boy who might also be an alien in disguise." So there will be teenages from outer space!
The story includes several elements that we've already seen and read over the years, but it still sounds like it has potential. It's going to be developed for a young adult audience, so that should give you a little insight into what this film will be and how it will turn out. It would be nice if it ended up being better than what I am imagining.
