EW asked the best-seller author for an update on her follow-up to The Host, which she has said may end up becoming a trilogy.

“I’m working on the sequel,” she said at the premiere. “I don’t know if it’ll be a trilogy. It depends on if I get to an ending point. We’ll see where the story ends.”

The two guys in the movie’s love triangle (or love quadrangle, really — things get complicated when there’s both a human and an alien soul trapped in one body) also said they’d be on board for a sequel. Jake Abel, who plays Ian, the one who falls in love with the alien Wanderer inhabiting Melanie’s body, said he would “absolutely” want to make a sequel. “I hope enough people go see it and want to see another one because I know we all would love to [make another one],” he said. Max Irons, who plays Jared, Melanie’s love interest, said of the film’s cast and crew, “It’s a good team. I think the team would be coming back in its entirety. So I’d be game.”

The Cast on Stephenie Meyer :-

Writer-director Andrew Niccol: “She’s such a beautiful collaborator. She really understands the process of filmmaking now. After going through the Twilight Saga movies, she understands that a novel is the work of one person, and a movie’s the work of 1,001 people. She had ideas, and she had opinions, but she wasn’t precious about them.”

Producer Roger Schwartz: “She was on set basically everyday, and she made a lot of executive decisions. We worked hand in glove with her [during] the whole process. She was really instrumental because we wanted to remain super faithful to the novel.”

Max Irons (Jared): “There were other casting rumors about who fans wanted to play Jared, so I remember on my first day, I was feeling very nervous, and I went up to Stephenie, and I said, ‘Am I getting Jared right? Do you have any tips?’ And she said, ‘Listen, we cast you for a reason. We trust your instincts. Go ahead and make Jared your own.’ So that took the pressure off.”

Saoirse Ronan (Melanie/Wanda): “Stephenie was very laid back and very relaxed about the whole thing. She’s very much used to film production after being in the Twilight world for so long. She gets it. She would never impose herself too much or anything, yet she was there if you needed to talk with her.”

Lee Hardee (Aaron): “She has an idea in her mind of what she wants these characters to be, so it’s great that she’s around and you can just ask her, ‘What is your vision for this scene and this character?’ It’s nice to have that resource. It’s little things [that she would have advice about], but it’s enough to make a difference, and it’s her vision so it matters.”
