Book to Movie News: The Host

It's official, The Host has officially been given a release date and production is moving forword! Why is this so important you ask? Two reasons 1.) First book review posted on I'd So Rather Be Reading and 2.) The same reason I reported on Odd Thomas' movie progress (my favorite)... this happens to be one of Kelli's favorite books. 
Here are the details released so far:
* Release Date: March 29, 2013
* Director: Andrew Niccol (also wrote the screenplay)
* Producers: Nick Wechsler, Chockstone Pictures' Paula Mae Schwartz and Steve Schwartz, and Stephenie Meyer 

*Saoise Ronan has been cast as Melanie
Wow has she grown up! She is a young woman now. I last reported that she was cast to play in another upcoming film The Hobbit but haven't seen any updates on that project thus far. I really like her films and can't wait to see her in action. We know she can handle action (Hanna) and drama (The Lovely Bones).

Who would you like to see play the role of Jared?

We vote Ian Somerhalder!

If you have any movie news please share!


  1. I loved THE HOST. Can't wait for the movie.

  2. Oh shiny! I really loved the book. I'm interested to see what they do with the movie. I like all Saoise Ronan's movies so it's great that she's been cast. I agree Ian would make a good Jared.

  3. I haven't read The Host. I'll have to get to it before the movie releases. I'm sure Saoirse Ronan will do a great job - she always does!

  4. I'm actually really excited for this! I adored the host and would absolutely love for Ian Somerhalder for Jared. I'm curious to see how they'll do the Wanda/Melanie situation with them talking to one another inside Melanie's head. Thanks for the movie news Natalie!

  5. I can not wait. I adore this book. I vote for Ian too.

  6. I'm with Jenny. I reallllly want to see who they choose for Wanda/Melanie and how they will handle the inner voices.

  7. Yes Ian please lol. Saoise looks like a goo Melanie!

    heard Fallen by Lauren Kate is being made into a movie(rumor idk Max irons as Daniel?)
