The Host Possibly Finds a US Distributor

Well, it has been a while since any news popped up on The Host after all the press surrounding Saoirse Ronan and Cannes died down.  If you have read our previous post, a US distributor for The Host was stilll up in the air.  Variety reported today that Open Road Films is in talks to distribute The Host domestically.

The article also mentions the same start date for production as before, January 2012.

Missing from this article?  Any mention of Saoirse Ronan being attached to the project.

On the other hand, Deadline has an article as well about the same thing, but they do mention Saoirse Ronan.  I do not know how much I trust Deadline with them breaking the news that Ronan was cast.  Several interviews came along with her saying she was only in talks.

Hopefully, Saoirse Ronan will say something official on her twitter.  We can only hope.  Follow her @Saoirse_Ronan.

  • Tell me who to write to about getting this movie made.  It is a great book and would make a wonderful movie.  I can’t believe it is taking so long.  Lots of bad scripts are out there and here is a great idea that is taking so very long.  Has Stephanie thought about doing something on her own?  My grandson would make a great Jamie.  He just got finished with his part in “The Hunger Games”  I just want to get the movie made though.  Would love to see it done really well. Good luck Stephenie!

  • I think Saoirse is doing Anna Karenina this winter, I wish we’d get confirmation 🙁

      This movie cannot wait for her, especially she is not the most ideally suited actor for the role.

    SR will not star in the movie.
    Time to take other nominations seriously.
    Evan Rachel Wood perhaps.

    When I read (and loved) the book, the only character I could visualize an actor for was Parminder Nagra as the Seeker.  Unfortunately I’m not really up on the younger actresses who could play the title role.

  • Too bad Ashley Greene is in Twilight.  She might make a really good Melanie.  She is really fit and looks the part.

  • Priscila

    I Would love to see Sam Elliott as uncle Jeb!!!!!!!!!!

    No doubt about it. Evan Rachel Wood is THE best person for the role of Melaine Stryder

  • Interesting that I just watched a new show on television that has a similar sub-plot as The Host.  It doesn’t compare at all to the quality of Stephanie Meyer’s book but there are similarities.
