LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) - British filmmaker J Blakeson ("The Disappearance of Alice Creed") is in negotiations to direct the sci-fi movie "The 5th Wave" for Sony Pictures, GK Films and Tobey Maguire's Material Pictures, TheWrap has learned.
GK Films acquired rights to the projects back in March 2012 when it purchased a proposal for a young adult trilogy from author Rick Yancey. At the time, Sony was expected to co-finance and distribute, and that arrangement has since been finalized.
