Not Twilight related, but still cool

Stephenie Meyer announced at the end of September that The Host will be made into a movie. Yes, I'm a little late at relaying the news, but thought I'd still share it with you. Better late, than never. :) And if you've never read The Host, I recommend it to all. It starts out a little slow, but if you stick with it, it gets soooo much better. Now, I wonder who will cast as the main roles. We'll just have to wait and see...Stephenie Meyer had this to say on her webpage:

"Hey guys, great news! The Host is on its way to the big screen: "Twilight's Meyer..."

I'm so excited to be working with Nick Wechsler, and Steve and Paula Mae Schwartz to bring The Host to a visual format. They've all been a dream to work with, so lovely and collaborative, and I feel like we're in a really good place to make a great movie together. And then to have Andrew Niccol writing and directing? Truly awesome. If you've never seen Gattaca, go watch it now. One of my favorite movies of all time. It's such a great example of character driven science fiction, which is ideal for The Host, no? I'm having an absolute blast imagining different dream casts, which I would post if people didn't take my silly blogs so seriously these days. I'm looking forward to seeing the cast lists you come up with in the fansite forums, and if any of them match mine.

So, very exciting. Yay Host!

I've watched Gattaca and it's definitely a great movie. "The Host" it's a nice book and I agree it does start a little slow but it gets to apoint where you just can't stop reading it"
Can't wait for the movie...
