The Host, NM Style

Posted by on June 27, 2011 | One comment

Open Road Films has announced that the film based on the 2008 best selling novel, The Host by Twilight author Stephenie Meyer, is set for release on March 23, 2013.

Of course before film hits reel production will get underway next winter in both Louisiana and right here in New Mexico!

The sci-fi thriller will center around a “lone human holdout trying to survive after a species of mysterious entities invades Earth and takes over the minds of their human hosts…”

Gattaca director Andrew Niccol will craft the movie expected to star Academy Award® nominee Saoirse Ronan (Atonement, The Lovely Bones).


“Studios have been looking for another big-time franchise to replace the Harry Potter and Stephenie Meyer’s own Twilight Saga franchises. The former will come to a close this year; the latter ends in summer 2012.”
– Zac Gille, Alt Film Guide

Thanks Chris
