The Host

So you've been wishing for another Stephenie Meyer book to be turned into a movie, huh? Well, I guess your wish is about to come true.

Wait. What's that you say? You haven't been wishing for a non-vampire Stephenie Meyer book to be made into a movie? You've read The Host and you found all the cave dwelling boring and thought the love triangle wasn't nearly as interesting as the one between a vampire, werewolf and human? Well, you should have said something to Hollywood, 'cause they think audiences WANT to see The Host turned into a movie. claims the actress who will portray Melanie Stryder is non other than Saoirse Ronan, who you might recognize from Peter Jackson's snore-tacular acid trip, The Lovely Bones, (who actually looks more like she belongs in The Hunger Games. I mean, she looks like she's starving.)

For those who haven't read The Host, it's kind of like Invasion of the Body Snatchers, but from "the host's" point of view. It's an interesting take, but a very dry book. Perhaps we'll all be pleasantly surprised that the movie version of the snore-fest is actually well done and entertaining like we were for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I... but I somehow highly doubt it. I guess we'll wait and see.
