The Host release date
Jeff Probst’s new talk show isn’t the only piece of host news today. Open Road Films announced that Andrew Niccol’s adaptation of The Host — Stephenie Meyer’s 2008 sci-fi novel — will be at your local cineplex on March 29, 2013. The film stars Saoirse Ronan as a twentysomething whose body is taken over by the soul of an alien. It will begin shooting in Louisiana and New Mexico in February. Will the film be infected by the same fever that surrounded the adaptation of Meyer’s other hit novel, Twilight?
