Susanna White will direct The Host from Twilight author Stephenie Meyer
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
I would bet a hefty sum that anything that TWILIGHT author Stephenie Meyer’s writes in the next couple of years will be optioned into a movie no matter what. Her 2010 novel THE HOST has been adapted by screenwriter Andrew Niccol who was originally going to direct but has stepped aside for other projects. The new director will be Susanna White who is best known for NANNY MCPHEE RETURNS and HBO’s GENERATION KILL. The story takes place where alien body snatchers have come to Earth and taken over the majority of the human population. When one of the human hosts fights against the invader the “soul” (yes, that is what they are called) realizes that human emotions are real and what her race is doing is not necessarily right. It’s a combination sci-fi and romance that isn’t as far-fetched as her Twilight series (sarcasm).
No studio has yet to pick up the film but stay tuned because it’s sure to come.
