Another young adult novel, The Fifth Wave, heading to the movies?

Director J. Blakeson's debut film, The Disappearance of Alice Creed, has an 81 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and he almost directed a Wool film. But now, instead, he seems primed to direct the movie of The Fifth Wave, Rick Yancey's exciting alien invasion novel.

According to Variety, Susannah Grant (Erin Brockovich) is working on the screenplay now — and given the success of the book and the fact that a book sequel is on the way, Sony is hoping this turns into a new franchise. At least it sounds like a different take on alien invasion than we've seen on the big screen lately. Fingers crossed...
