Gearing up to be the next big YA franchise following in the footsteps of achieving 'Twilight', 'The Hunger Games', and 'Divergent' level fame! The franchise has cast Chloë Grace Moretz in the lead as Cassie Sullivan and now they are looking for someone to fill the shoes of male lead, Evan Walker

If you don't already know, the movie is based on the best-selling novel by Rick Yancey and is being adapted by Susannah Grant, who got an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for the film 'Erin Brockovich' and directed by J. Blakeson best known for the film 'The Disappearance of Alice Creed'.

The three young male actors up for Evan Walker are Nick Robinson, Tye Sheridan, and Mitchell Hope.

Robinson is best known for his work in the film 'The Kings of Summer' and his role as Ryder Scanlon in the ABC Family-hit sitcom 'Melissa & Joey'. He is also set to star as Zach in the much-anticipated film 'Jurassic World' alongside Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard.

Sheridan has worked with Brad Pitt in 'The Tree of Life' and Matthew McConaughey in 'Mud'. He is set to co-star along with Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, and Chloë Grace Moretz in the adaptation of Gillian Flynn's novel 'Dark Places'.

Mitchell Hope is the most unknown of the group and is set to star in the Disney Channel Original Movie 'Descendants' along side Dove Cameron, Kristen Chenoweth, and Booboo Stewart.
