Stephenie Meyer's 'The Host' to be Made in to Feature Film
Widely successful Twilight author Stephenie Meyer has had the rights to her first adult novel The Host bought to be made in to a feature film. The Host is Meyer's love story set in the future on Earth, when it has been taken over by an alien species called 'souls'. They take possession of human's bodies, and the book becomes a story between one 'soul' The Wanderer, and a human Melanie Stryder as they try to locate the last surviving humans on earth.
In fact, Niccol first came under consideration after Wechsler and the Schwartz’ asked Meyer her favorite science fiction films, and “Gattaca” and “The Truman Show” were in her top five. Niccol wrote and directed “Gattaca” and scripted the Peter Weir-directed “The Truman Show.”
