Stephenie Meyer's The Host 'close to being filmed'

5th May 2011

The big screen adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's The Host has moved a step closer to being filmed, with Saoirse Ronan cast in the role of heroine Melanie Stryder.

The Host will be the first non-Twilight Meyer novel to be adapted, with the screenplay already completed by Andrew Niccol, who wrote the scripts for The Truman Show and Lord of War.

Ronan's character is one of the remaining human survivors fighting an alien species known as Souls, which invade the bodies of their human hosts and control their actions.

The actress is no stranger to film adaptations, starring in the big screen version of Alice Sebold's The Lovely Bones, directed by Peter Jackson, and 2007's Oscar-winning Atonement, based on the acclaimed Ian McEwan novel.

The big screen adaptations of Meyer's Twilight novels have enjoyed enormous success since the first film was released in 2008, making stars of its cast, including Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart.

As the final instalments of the film series, Breaking Dawn Parts 1 and 2, near cinema release dates, Meyer is reportedly considering whether to sell the rights to the novels.
