“The Host” Movie Gets Director

Feb 10th, 2011 | By | Category: Featured Articles, Movie News, The Host

Variety is reporting that Susanna White will be directing the film adaptation of Stephenie Meyer’s The Host. 

Susanna White (“Nanny McPhee Returns”) is attached to direct the feature adaptation of “The Host,” author Stephenie Meyer’s follow-up to “The Twilight Saga.”

Nick Wechsler will produce the indie through his eponymous banner, along with Chockstone Pictures’ Steve Schwartz and Paula Mae Schwartz.

Andrew Niccol (“The Truman Show”) wrote the sci-fi drama, which concerns a young woman whose body is inhabited by a benevolent alien soul after an invasion of Earth.

Some of White’s past work includes Generation Kill, Bleak House, and Jane Eyre.   You can view all of her film credits over at IMDB.

So, what do you think of the choice in director?  Do you think that having a woman director will bring new angles to the finished product?  Or did you have someone else in mind?

    Isn’t it weird how they said in the article, “Andrew Niccol (“The Truman Show”) WROTE the sci-fi drama, which concerns a young woman whose body is inhabited by a benevolent alien soul after an invasion of Earth.”

    Um, he didn’t write it, people! A fabulous lady author by the name of Stephenie Meyer did. They should have inserted the word “screenplay” in there somewhere.

    As for the director, I don’t know anything about so I can’t judge. I do, however, like the idea of a woman directing it since the story takes place pretty much the whole time in a woman’s mind. She can relate to the character.
