Sony’s The 5th Wave, the adaptation of Rick Yancey’s popular YA novel, is rounding out the cast ahead, adding Sons of Anarchy star Maggie Siff and Hart of Dixie actress Talitha Bateman.
Chloe Grace Moretz stars in the film as Cassie, a teen girl who is one of the human survivors after four waves of increasingly deadly attacks left most of Earth decimated. She’s on a mission to rescue her younger brother Sammy, while also trying to prepare for inevitable and lethal fifth wave of attacks by the aliens.
Siff will play Cassie and Sammy’s mother Lisa, who suffers terribly when the third wave releases a plague on Earth. Bateman will play Teacup, a young girl who is also in the child army where Sammy is being held.
Directed by J Blakeson from a screenplay by Susannah Grant, The 5th Wave also stars Nick Robinson, Alex Roe, Maika Monroe, Liev Schreiber and Ron Livingston.
Tobey Maguire, Graham King, Lynn Harris, and Matthew Plouffe are producing, while Denis O’Sullivan and Richard Middleton are executive producing. Andrea Giannetti brought the project to Sony and will oversee for the studio with Hannah Minghella.

Hey all! I’m Carol of CharlieHunnam.org and thanks to my good friend Colleen for welcoming on to her site. I’ve loved Maggie for a long time now and I’m so happy to be apart of the site. In light of my joining I’ve added a new site and gallery design. I hope you all like it and find it easy to browse (especially on mobile).
You can expect the site to be undergoing some changes in the coming weeks and months as Colleen and myself work to better the site which will include the site content, as well as many gallery additions and replacements. Stay tuned!
After the finale, you said the park scene was the most important one for Tara in that episode. What conversations did you have with Charlie Hunnam and Kurt Sutter going into it?
For me, the question was really, am I really afraid that he’s going to kill me? And I think Charlie felt similarly: is this really a consideration? Having to dig and find that place where that could be true was the hard work of the episode — finding all of the love that she had for this man in addition to the terror that she has arrived at. So that was some of my conversation with Kurt. And then I also knew it was, for myself, really the last significant scene that you would ever really see between them. There’s the scene in the hotel room and some stuff that follows, but the life of those characters together kind of culminates in that scene. It felt particularly significant for that reason.

‘Sons of Anarchy’s’ Maggie Siff on Tara and the Season-Six Finale (Q&A)
Whether it was Skyler on Breaking Bad, Rita on Dexter, Lori on The Walking Dead, or Margaret on Boardwalk Empire, TV wives often seem to be on the receiving end of a lot of hate, even when their on-screen husbands are often guilty of much worse crimes. So it was not altogether surprising when many Sons of Anarchy fans set their sights — and vitriol — on Jax Teller’s wife Tara.
Granted, she faked a pregnancy and a miscarriage to trick Jax into signing a restraining order against his own mother. And granted, she was doing this to get her sons away from the dangerous world of SAMCRO, and, it seems, their father. But is removing the boys away from such an environment such a bad thing? Is Tara just the latest victim of another sexual double-standard, in which female characters are held to a different standard than the male protagonists to which they are married?
We spoke to the woman who plays Tara, Maggie Siff, on Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) this morning and asked her about fan reaction to her character’s misdeeds, and viewer reaction to such female characters in general. “I really try not to read those message boards because they make me break out in hives,” said Siff. “But I do have some sense of what’s out there.” She then offered the following thoughts:
“I think it’s a really interesting conversation. I think these shows are always set up so we follow a protagonist and the story is very intricately built around caring for them in some way. And so anybody who runs counter to that is going to run into the problem of people turning on them. But I also think there are pretty deep gender cultural issues that have to do with a certain kind of fantasy of male and female roles, and a certain kind of fantasy around this anti-hero — the man who does terrible, terrible things but who we root for anyway because it’s an enactment of an adolescent male fantasy that people take great pleasure in seeing played out. And people who run counter encounter a lot of hostility. I think it’s the hostility that’s the most disturbing thing — the amount of vehemence or anger or righteousness that people can feel when they say, “She should be shot. She should be killed.’” That’s the thing that’s most startling and disturbing, when you really sit down and think about it.”
