The Host

Say what you will about Stephanie Meyer or her Twilight series, but the woman has a following.

And now, for the adaptation of her latest work, The Host, William Hurt has joined the upcoming Andrew Niccol-directed film, which will find him alongside Saoirse Ronan. Ronan stars as Melanie Stryder, with Hurt playing “Jeb, eccentric uncle” to Stryder, “whose brain is hijacked by the soul of an alien being known as Wanderer. Jeb is one of the grizzled leaders of the human survivalists fighting the alien invasion.”

Personally, I love this news. Hurt is a fantastic actor, and adds a ton of intrigued and class to this otherwise oddly intriguing project. Ronan is one of the best young actresses around, and while I’m not a huge fan of Niccol as a filmmaker, particularly following his last film, but with this cast, this type of project has a bunch to look forward to.

What do you think?
