The Host from Stephenie MeyerAlready going through Twilight withdrawal now that the final installment of the saga, Breaking Dawn Part 2, will be in theaters Friday?

Never fear, Stephenie Meyer has written a new novel called The Host, and she’s producing the film adaptation, directed and written by Andrew Niccol.

The film has a high caliber cast including Saoirse Ronan (Hanna), Diane Kruger (National Treasure), and William Hurt (Kiss of the Spider Woman). The premise is that all the humans on earth have been invaded by parasitic aliens except for a few who have resisted, including Melanie Stryder (Ronan).

While I was bored with Twilight after the first film (and the first book) — snooze — The Host appears to be more compelling. I don’t know if these aliens sparkle in the sunlight or play baseball in the deepest part of the forest, but I’m down to see it.

The Host arrives in theaters March 29, 2013. What do you think?

    Ronan is worth watching, and I could use a well done alien body invasion story, which this looks like, and Meyers writes good stories that engage my heart because her characters are real, filled with doubts, and struggling to be themselves in a cold world, a world filled with good, bad and indifferent influences, but Melanie Stryder – I cringe at the lack of originality.
