Casting has started for the movie version of one of my favorite books, THE HOST by Stephanie Meyer. Saoirse Ronan will have the staring role of Melanie/Wanderer.
|As super teen assassin Hanna|
She's currently in HANNA which I hear is awesome, but credits include ATONEMENT, THE LOVELY BONES, and is rumored to be in the upcoming HOBBIT. I think she'll do a great job!
|His adorable self!|
Ian Somerhalder's name has been batted around in the past for the main love interest but I haven't heard anything recently. I think that would be sweet!
Fan favorites for Uncle Jeb are Sam Elliott and Jeff Bridges. I'm good with either one.
I'm excited but worried because so much of what happens goes on in the head of Melanie/Wanderer. I hope they get it right!
What are your thoughts?
