Coming to a screen in the future: “The Host”

Stephenie Meyer’s ‘The Host’ to become a film. Twilighters, your thoughts?

Hungry for more from “Twilight” author Stephenie Meyer?
Her novel “The Host” just got picked up for the big screen. “The Truman Show” and “Gattaca” screenwriter Andrew Niccol will develop the script, according to Variety.

Apparently, when the producers asked Meyer what her fave sci-fi flicks were, Meyer mentioned both “The Truman Show” and “Gattaca” in the top five.

Like “Twilight,” “The Host” is a love story. Of a sort.

But no bloodsuckers. This time it’s benign extraterrestrial parasites called Souls. One such Soul – dubbed the Wanderer — joins itself to a dying human to find the survivors of the human race.

Wow. Not exactly the stuff of teen romantic dreams. But maybe there’s a role for Robert Pattinson in there somewhere?

What do you think about “The Host?” Have you read it? It is as compelling as the “Twilight” series?

Got any casting ideas/suggestions?

Well…this could be interesting.  I think it has the possibility of being great or going epically sideways.  It could come off as looking like a glamed-over version of “Stargate: Atlantis”, or, might even approach the level of cool that (I hope) the upcoming “Avatar” looks to have.  I guess we shall see. ;)
