There is a new interview with Saoirse Ronan who will be playing Melanie Stryder in The Host. The interview is with SFX Magazine which is a science fiction magazine in the UK. Ronan describes the story of The Host as:
“. . . still set in our world but it’s a perfected version of our world, which I think is good becuase it means we’re not going to be completely detached from it. I think that’s why it might be a bit more touching because it is actually our world.”
Ronan also says that The Host director Andrew Niccol “has a very specific vision and it’s a cool concept.”
The quotes I am pulling for this post are from Hypable, which quote SFX. The interview cannot be found online, so if anyone is in the UK and would like to send us a scan of the interview, that would be great. I just got back from the UK yesterday, and I wish I had known about this interview while I was still there.
