Film Adaptation of The Host by Stephenie Meyer to be Released by Open Road Films

The Host by Stephenie Meyer

Open Road Films has acquired the distribution rights to the film adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's 2008 bestselling sci-fi thriller The Host.

Production is expected to begin in February 2012, with Andrew Niccol (Gattaca, Lord of War) directing his own screenplay adaptation.

Saoirse Ronan (Hanna, The Lovely Bones) has been signed to star as Melanie Stryder, a young woman who refuses to allow an alien species that has invaded the earth to take over her soul.

Wanderer, who has been given Melanie's body, knew about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, 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.

Melanie fills Wanderer's thoughts 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 yearns for a man she's never met. As outside forces make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off to search for the man they both love.

The film has a tentative release date of March 2013.
