Meyer's Host coming

Sep. 23, 2009by: Tony Lang

THE HOST book cover

Good news for TWILIGHT fans, and probably for some others as well. At least I hope so, 'cause I KNOW I'll be dragged to see that one too.

Stephenie Meyer's other novel THE HOST which is apparently aimed at a more mature audience (the kind that doesn't scream Moreno's ears out at Comic Con, or at least not as loud) has been purchased by producers Nick Wechsler, Steve and Paula Mae Schwartz who intend to develop the film independently; worked for Summit after all... That's the good news for Twilight fans. I'm guessing if they liked the tween-centric "vampire" books, they liked that one too.

As for the others, the good news comes in the form of a solid writer/director already signed on and apparently quite enthusiastic about the project, one Andrew Niccol whose GATTACA and LORD OF WAR count among my own favorite films. Is there a part for Ethan Hawke in that book?

The story is set in a near-future Earth where aliens in parasite forms have overtaken most of the population. Can't say I know much more about it, so fans of the book please feel free to fill in the blanks.

Extra Tidbit: GATTACA - funny watching a film from when Ethan Hawke was a much bigger star then Jude Law...

The Host is a really good book. With this director and as long as they have a good budge, this movie has a lot of potential.

I'd just about follow Andrew Niccol into the fiery bowels of Hell. In addition to "GATTACA" and "Lord of War," he also penned one of my very favorite movies, "The Truman Show."

I haven't seen S1mOne, but from what I've heard, I don't know if I should.

If you only see one movie this year, see GATTACA.

Niccol is a really great director, it's a shame he's not better known

What's an equally big shame is how Hawke's career has dropped off, for about a decade there that guy was on fire. Gattaca, Reality Bites, Lord of War, Before Sunrise & Before Sunset, the list goes on.

Also, for the record, he'd be my top choice for the Daredevil reboot (even if he isn't the most obvious choice).
