Diane Kruger is cast negotiating for the film adaptation of Stephenie Meyer‘s The Host. The character Diane Kruger is currently in negotiations for is the lead alien villain role of The Seeker in a science fiction film adaptation directed by Andrew Niccol and already starring Saoirse Ronan, William Hurt, Max Irons, and Jake Abel.
The Seeker’s role is pivotal in the book and in the upcoming film adaptation of The Host:
The Seeker…is charged with overseeing the conversion of a young rebel soldier (Ronan) whose consciousness has been infiltrated by Wanderer, a soul that has taken control of bodies and minds but who is daunted by the young human’s spirit — and obsessed with the memories of her boyfriend and her brother — and sets out to track them down. The Seeker pursues her, knowing that the conversion of the rebel will lead to the discovery and eradication of the rebel movement.
If you have not read Stephenie Meyer’s The Host, the plot of it is:
The novel introduces an alien race, called Souls, which takes over the Earth and its inhabitants. The book describes one Soul’s predicament when the mind of its human host refuses to cooperate with her takeover.
Open Road Film’s plans for The Host:
While it’s based on one novel by Twilight Saga author Meyer, the movie is being set up as a trilogy. Open Road acquired U.S. distribution rights last year and production will start shortly for a March 29, 2013 release. Nick Wechsler, Chockstone Pictures’ Paula Mae Schwartz and Steve Schwartz are producing with Meyer.
The story has a couple of things going on simultaneously so it could be good. What do you think?
