Now that Stephanie’s a household name, movie producers can’t wait to get their hands on ‘The Host’ and have set a date for the film’s release!
Even though the final scenes of Breaking Dawn have just come to an end, it’s already on to the next big thing, an adaptation of Stephanie Meyer‘s best-selling book, The Host, Deadline Hollywood told us first. The movie will hit theaters in 2013!
The Host was released in 2008 after the last of the author’s wildly successful Twilight series, and stayed at #1 on the New York Times Bestseller List for 26 weeks.
It’s no wonder that her popular novel is being taken to the big screen, especially because the Twilight film franchise has grossed $1.4 billion to date, and there are still two movies yet to be released!
Here’s an excerpt from the official confirmation:
” Open Road Films has acquired U.S. distribution rights to The Host, the big screen adaptation of Twilight series author Stephenie Meyer’s best-selling novel. As previously announced, The Host will be directed by Andrew Niccol (Gattaca), who also wrote the screenplay, and will star Saoirse Ronan (Hanna, The Lovely Bones, Atonement). Open Road Films has set a March 29, 2013 release date (Easter weekend) for The Host.“
The novel is about humans being invaded by an unseen Alien race called ‘Souls’ that inhabit human minds while leaving their bodies intact. Melanie is one of the last remaining wild humans, but becomes inhabited by a Soul named Wanderer who is frustrated that Melanie will not relinquish control and by her vivid human memories. Eventually, they are forced to work together — and of course, there’s a love interest!
