Variety reports:

 

Exclusive: Susanna White ("Nanny McPhee Returns") is attached to direct the feature adaptation of "The Host," author Stephenie Meyer's follow-up to "The Twilight Saga."

Nick Wechsler will produce the indie through his eponymous banner, along with Chockstone Pictures' Steve Schwartz and Paula Mae Schwartz.

 

Andrew Niccol ("The Truman Show") wrote the sci-fi drama, which concerns a young woman whose body is inhabited by a benevolent alien soul after an invasion of Earth.

 

White made her directorial debut last year with the "Nanny McPhee" sequel, which grossed more than $93 million worldwide.

I don't know if she's experienced enough. I HONESTLY DON'T WANT THIS book to be ruined like Twilight was.

Nanny McPhee was her movie directoral debut - she has actually been nominated for two Primetime Emmy's for HBO's Generation Kill and also Jane Eyre. So she is not as inexperienced as that particular article makes her sound. And personally I loved what Catherine Hardwicke did for Twilight. Her Twilight vision was the foundation upon which New Moon, Eclipse and now Breaking Dawn was built upon. You have her to thank for Robert Pattinson and the cast. She did an amazing job on a limited budget. Eclipse had twice the money to work with and of course it shows. I can't wait to see her Red Riding Hood which comes out next month.
