Sharing the latest movie news about 'The Host'. If you haven't read it yet, do so!! It's an excellent book!!!
Twilight and New Moon author Stephenie Meyer is working on her next film adaptation beyond the Twilight Saga film franchise with the first Meyer penned adult fiction novel, The Host currently, which is in early stages of pre-production. The Host tells the story of parasitic type aliens that have taken over the minds of almost all of humanity.
According to a Stephenie Meyer related story on Deadline.com, apparently a screenplay for The Host is currently in the works says Host producer Steve Schwartz who revealed that Andrew Niccol will write and direct the Meyer story.
For her post Twilight Saga adapted movie without Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, Stephenie Meyer made mention of wanting Robert Redford and Ben Affleck to star in the film adaptation of The Host. However, since a production budget has not even been set for The Host, fans of Stephenie Meyer will have to wait.
In the meantime as The Host gets going, readers can wonder if Meyer will actually continue the series with her two allegedly planned sequels.
