It's been reported that Stephenie Meyer's novel, The Host, is currently in pre-production and filming will start in early 2011.
The Host was a #1 New York Times Bestseller for 26 weeks.
Stephenie has said that she casts roles in her head while writing a book. With Twilight, she wanted actors who were unknown, but with this story, she wants A-list actors. The names she has listed is Robert Redford, Matt Damon, and Ben and Casey Affleck.
Here's a brief description of the bestselling book:
Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away.
Our world has been invaded by an unseen enemy. Humans become hosts for these invaders, their minds taken over while their bodies remain intact and continue their lives apparently unchanged. Most of humanity has succumbed.
When Melanie, one of the few remaining "wild" humans is captured, she is certain it is her end. Wanderer, the invading "soul" who has been given Melanie's body, was warned about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, the glut of senses, the too vivid memories. But there was one difficulty Wanderer didn't expect: the former tenant of her body refusing to relinquish possession of her mind.
Wanderer probes Melanie's thoughts, hoping to discover the whereabouts of the remaining human resistance. Instead, Melanie fills Wanderer's mind with visions of the man Melanie loves—Jared, a human who still lives in hiding. Unable to separate herself from her body's desires, Wanderer begins to yearn for a man she has been tasked with exposing. When outside forces make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off on a dangerous and uncertain search for the man they both love.
