THE HOST Steps Closer to Big Screen

Variety reports that producers have just bought the film rights to Stephenie Meyer’s adult title, The Host.

Why wasn’t it snapped up long ago, even before publication? According to the Variety, Meyer,

…spurned several overtures for The Host…[but] the producers continued lobbying the author and her reps… with a significant offer, a strong vision for the project, and a collaborative spirit. Meyer eventually said yes.

Andrew Niccol (Gattaca, Lord of War & the upcoming sci-fi film, The Cross) will write the screenplay and direct.

In April of last year, Meyer told MTV that she might turn The Host into a series,

If I were to continue on with The Host, which is a possibility, there are characters and stories that could continue…Next would be The Soul, and then The Seeker.
