The famous author of Twilight will soon have another of her books made into a movie. Stephenie Meyer’s The Host will be out in movie theaters March 29, 2013.
Will this movie be the phenomenon that the Twilight movies have been? Will the actors in The Host become the sensations that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have become because of their lead parts in the Twilight movies?
It’s hard to say. This will be a different type of movie. No vampires. No werewolves. No Bella and no Edward. This is a science fiction novel that deals with entities called Souls that take over the inhabitants of planets. The Host, published in 2008, focuses on one Soul’s difficulty to take over a rebel human’s mind on Earth. Is that going to capture the attention of all of Meyer’s fans waiting for another Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, or Breaking Dawn?
So far, it is confirmed that Saoirse Ronan will play the character of Melanie in the movie adaptation of the book. What other famous or possibly soon-to-be famous actors will be cast in Stephenie Meyer’s The Host? Do aspiring actors consider Meyer’s movies to be the ticket to fame after witnessing what has happened with her previous Twilight characters?
