I am ridiculously excited about this news- The Host is going to be made into a movie!!!!!!!
This is from Stephenie's site-
I'm so excited to be working with Nick Weschler, and Steve and Paula Mae Schwartz to bring The Host to a visual format. They've all been a dream to work with, so lovely and collaborative, and I feel like we're in a really good place to make a great movie together. And then to have Andrew Niccol writing and directing? Truly awesome. If you've never seen Gattaca, go watch it now. One of my favorite movies of all time. It's such a great example of character driven science fiction, which is ideal for The Host, no? I'm having an absolute blast imagining different dream casts, which I would post if people didn't take my silly blogs so seriously these days. I'm looking forward to seeing the cast lists you come up with in the fansite forums, and if any of them match mine.
So, very exciting. Yay Host!
I love, love, LOVE The Host and can't wait to see it brought to life on film. Stephenie Meyer is working with the producers which makes me feel so much better. It's always better when the author is involved since they know these characters inside and out. SO EXCITED!!!!
