The Host Movie Coming Soon!

Stephenie Meyer makes an exciting announcement on her web page:

September 23, 2009
"Hey guys, great news! The Host is on its way to the big screen: "Twilight's Meyer..."
I'm so excited to be working with Nick Weschler, and Steve and Paula Mae Schwartz to bring The Host to a visual format. They've all been a dream to work with, so lovely and collaborative, and I feel like we're in a really good place to make a great movie together. And then to have Andrew Niccol writing and directing? Truly awesome. If you've never seen Gattaca, go watch it now. One of my favorite movies of all time. It's such a great example of character driven science fiction, which is ideal for The Host, no? I'm having an absolute blast imagining different dream casts, which I would post if people didn't take my silly blogs so seriously these days. I'm looking forward to seeing the cast lists you come up with in the fansite forums, and if any of them match mine. "
So, very exciting. Yay Host!

This book is so awesome I can't wait to see the adaptation to the big screen!!
Here are some related videos and articles about
The Host.
This is what Stephenie said about who she would like to see play her characters if The Host would be made into a movie..let's pray to the movie gods she gets her wish.
" With "The Host," I think the actors could be really big names. That would be cool. I'd love to see Robert Redford put on a beard and be Jeb; he would be amazing. ... Matt Damon has some very Jared-esque qualities, and then [I'd love to see] Casey Affleck as Ian and Ben Affleck as Kyle. Imagine the interplay. "
