So i just received an email from Fandango that had a really interesting story about
Stephanie Meyers' book The Host! Here's the article.


Stephenie Meyers' Ditches 'The Twilight Saga' for 'The Host'
By: Erik Davis on September 23, 2009 at 3:01PM Comments (34) As a novelist, naturally, Twilight author Stephenie Meyer has worked on more than just a handful of teen-centric vampire novels. And now that her Twilight Saga has turned into a giant fangirl-tastic franchise, Hollywood is looking to cash in on whatever else the gal has up her sleeve. That "whatever else" just happens to be Meyer's first adult novel, The Host, which was picked up by producers Nick Wechsler, Steve and Paula Mae Schwartz, all of whom used their own money to nab the screen rights. Andrew Niccol (Gattica, Lord of War) will write the screenplay.

So what's The Host about? Well, sadly it has nothing to do with the 2006 Korean monster movie of the same name. Nope, instead, Meyer's book is a love story set in the near future on Earth where a species of altruistic parasites have assumed the control of the minds and bodies of most humans, with the exception of one feisty chick named Melanie Stryder – who refuses to surrender her mind and body to an alien soul named Wanderer. Thus, together, Melanie and the sympathetic Wanderer set out to find the last surviving humans, who include a fellow resistor named Jared.

Reviews of the book are quite positive, and of course it leaves itself open to a sequel or another Meyer movie franchise. Niccol is an exceptional science fiction writer, and I could see him doing some fun things with a wacky story like this.

Have you read The Host? Do you think they'll convince Kristen Stewart to star? Sound off below…
