In a rare occassion, Stephenie Meyer updated her official website with news about all three projects she has going on right now. Filming on The Host begins one day before we originally reported. It now begins Monday, February 13, 2012. ((TWO DAYS!))
She talks about all those involved and getting ready to shoot. She also announced that Frances Fisher will be playing Maggie. Frances has been in many, many projects, but is probably known by you all as Rose’s mother in Titanic. I am beyond belief that we are getting such a stellar cast for the film.
The caves are apparently well on their way to being completed and she says they look amazing.
Stephenie also teased at some fan involvement:
First, a little tease: check back to this page soonish, as I will have some very exciting news to share about upcoming chance for you to get involved with The Host. Stay tuned!
Stephenie does not plan on getting back to writing until May, when everything is done filming and pretty much everything is set with her current projects.
Things are very under wraps so I doubt we will be getting any tweets or pictures about the filming process. There are still some cast members that need to be announced, so hopefully that will happen soon.
Please check out Stephenie Meyer’s website for her full account on what is going on with The Host. Thanks, Stephenie!
