MOVIE NEWS: Stephanie Meyer's The Host

stephaniemeyer.jpgWith the Twilight movie adaptation being a huge hit (and sequel New Moon is set to hit theaters on November 20), it comes as no surprise that Stephanie Meyer's adult novel, The Host, is also on its way to the big screen.

According to the Guardian film blog, sci-fi novel The Host is 'a love triangle involving two bodies. In a near future in which Earth has been overrun by alien body-snatchers, one of their number is fused with a dying woman in an attempt to track down the planet's last remaining human resistance. However, complications ensue when the alien finds herself falling in love with the human's missing mate.'

And Stephanie herself will be involved in the movie. "We wanted Stephenie to be involved in the adaptation and have her endorse and be part of the creative decisions," said producer Nick Wechsler. "Twilight has proven she knows more about what works than most."

The Twilight adaptation was a worldwide hit, taking in £233m.
