"The Host (2013)" has got its release date. The forthcoming movie, which is based on a novel written by "Twilight" author Stephenie Meyer, will grace cinemas across the United States on March 29, 2013.
Open Road Films, a joint venture of AMC Entertainment and Regal Entertainment, will distribute the fantasy sci-fi flick. Meanwhile, the production is scheduled for February 2012 in Louisiana and New Mexico.
"The Host" revolves around Melanie Stryder, one of the last human beings who fight against a harmful alien, Souls. She is later implanted by a Soul called Wanderer, something of a legend because of all of the "hosts" she has attached to on numerous planets.
Trying to get Melanie to give up the remaining pockets of humans, the alien instead finds her to be unique. Wanderer is so overwhelmed by Melanie's memories and feelings that the alien is driven to reconnect with Melanie's old life. Saoirse Ronan will star as the main character, with Andrew Niccol directing and providing the script.
