We’re done with movies based on Stephenie Meyer’s sparkling vampires, but that doesn’t mean Hollywood’s finished with adapting Meyer’s books for the screen. Heading to theaters on March 29, 2013 is The Host, based on Meyer’s novel about aliens on Earth. Andrew Niccol (In Time, Lord of War) handled adapting and directing the feature film version which stars Saoirse Ronan, Jake Abel, Max Irons, and Diane Kruger. And in this behind the scenes video, Abel discusses his character and the story.
The Host is a love story set in the future, where earth is occupied by a species who erase the minds of their human hosts, leaving their bodies intact. Melanie Stryder (Ronan) is one of the last surviving humans who fights back, risking her life for the people she cares about most—Jared (Irons), Ian (Abel), her brother Jamie (Chandler Canterbury), and her Uncle Jeb (William Hurt)—proving that love can conquer all.
