The Host...Movie Rights Purchased, Directors Assigned!

On the author's blog,, she shares with fans the exciting news of The Host being made into a movie. Here's what the best-selling author had to say about the news of her fifth novel hitting the big screen:

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!

We are excited too, Stephenie! The Host was a fabulous novel with such unique characters and moving plot. I can't wait to see where the directors take this project...I'm sure filming the underground tunnels will be a challenge!
