When we caught up with Stephenie Meyer at the big world premiere of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1," it was a no-brainer to ask her how she feels about seeing the final chapter of her vampire saga come to life on the big screen. But since Stephenie was a producer on "Breaking Dawn," in addition to having penned the source material, it's also no surprise that the author seems just a little bit fatigued by the whole "Twilight" thing at the moment.
"It's a really grueling thing, being on a movie set every day," she said, going on to explain that she's been pretty much eating, sleeping and breathing "Twilight" for months on end.
But after the requisite discussion of the wedding, the honeymoon, and, of course, that particular scene in which Edward destroys the furniture in a sexual fugue state, MTV News' Josh Horowitz was able to move on to some fresher material—or as Stephenie puts it, "cleanse the palate" of vampire-related chitchat. And the next topic on tap? The upcoming movie adaptation of "The Host"!
And it's already getting exciting, y'all; Stephenie got animated at the mere mention of the new project, saying, "We just cast the boys, and I'm so excited!"
Dude! So are we! Tell us more!
"And Saoirse Ronan," added Stephenie. "So amazing! You just can't take your eyes off of her, she's unbelievable."
And lest any skeptical readers are sitting there thinking that "The Host" couldn't possibly titillate you the way that a vampire-werewolf love triangle has for the past three years, you might want to check out this inside scoop on just how many schmexy sparks flew between stars Saoirse Ronan, Jake Abel and Max Irons during the audition process.
"Wow, the chemistry," Stephenie exclaimed. "With the auditions, it was just really clear. Chemistry isn't something you can manufacture. And Saoirse and Jake, Saoirse and Max..."
Unfortunately, Stephenie kinda trailed off there without giving any more insight into what went on behind the scenes during casting. But that's okay; it just makes us want to know more! And we'll be watching carefully in the weeks post-"Breaking Dawn" to snag any more insider info on just what's happening with Stephenie Meyer's next cinematic project.
