The movie adaptation of Meyer’s apocalyptic sci-fi novel The Host will arrive in theaters March 29, 2013. The film stars Saoirse Ronan (Hanna, The Lovely Bones, Atonement) in a story of one of the last holdouts against an invasion by entities that take over human minds while leaving their bodies intact. Published in 2008, The Host is Meyer’s follow-up to her best-selling “Twilight” series. The Host is scheduled to begin shooting in Louisiana and New Mexico next February. Andrew Niccol (Gattaca) wrote the screenplay and is directing.
