Frances Fisher joins the cast of Stephenie Meyer's The Host

02.24.2012

Alright, the Stephenie Meyer bashing is going to get old and repetitious if I keep on doing it every time a story for THE HOST comes up.

On that note, Francis Fisher (TITANIC) is joining Diane Kruger, Saoirse Ronan, Jake Abel, and William Hurt in the adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's sci-fi novel, THE HOST. The actress will be playing the role of Maggie, "a stern aunt to Melanie (Ronan) and sister to Uncle Jeb (William Hurt)."

The film is directed by Andrew Niccol and due to release on March 29, 2013.

Here's the extremely long synopsis:

Our world has been invaded by an unseen enemy. Humans become hosts for these invaders, their minds taken over while their bodies remain intact and continue their lives apparently unchanged. Most of humanity has succumbed.

When Melanie, one of the few remaining "wild" humans is captured, she is certain it is her end. Wanderer, the invading "soul" who has been given Melanie's body, was warned about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, the glut of senses, the too vivid memories. But there was one difficulty Wanderer didn't expect: the former tenant of her body refusing to relinquish possession of her mind.

Wanderer probes Melanie's thoughts, hoping to discover the whereabouts of the remaining human resistance. Instead, Melanie fills Wanderer's mind with visions of the man Melanie loves—Jared, a human who still lives in hiding. Unable to separate herself from her body's desires, Wanderer begins to yearn for a man she has been tasked with exposing. When outside forces make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off on a dangerous and uncertain search for the man they both love.

This book is nowhere near as bad as the Twilight books. With Niccol and Ronan involved I think this could be at least decent.

It's a shame that a director as talented as Niccol has to stoop to this garbage. More tween drivel from the maestro of the genre, Stephanie Meyer.

I do not understand why Deadline claimed this as an exclusive since Stephenie Meyer herself broke this news almost two weeks ago. How can you claim an exclusive when it has been known already? And they are not done announcing the cast as there are still a few main characters left that do not have an actor attached to it (officially). Filming has already begun and you can glimpse the look of the film from set pics/video [link]
