Director and Star in Place for The Host

Academy Award nominee Saoirse Ronan has landed the role of Melanie Stryder in the film adaptation of The Host.

Earlier this year it was reported that Emmy nominee Susanna White would helm the film, but Andrew Niccol has since taken over the reins as director/screenwriter.

“Having Andrew at the helm for us is incredibly invigorating as he truly shares Stephenie’s vision on this film,” said Kimberly Fox, Inferno’s President of International Sales.
