Considering all the buzz surrounding Saoirse Ronan revolves around her potential involvement in The Host, I found it intriguing that she has become attached to another film completely. The Hollywood Reporter has reported that Ronan and Gemma Arterton are playing vampires (ironically) in Byzantium. The film will be directed by Neil Jordan and is expected to start shooting in OCTOBER 2011.
I have no clue what this means for The Host. Considering the script and the director are set for The Host and casting has begun, I thought they would potentially start filming The Host this year. Although, we still have not heard definitively from Inferno or Stephenie Meyer that Saoirse Ronan is playing Melanie Stryder. I am still waiting for more news to come out of Cannes.
