Fun fact: Stephanie Meyer, author of novel/film sensation “Twilight,” has actually written a book for adults! It’s called “The Host,” and has just been picked up by producers Nick Wechsler, Steve Schwartz, and Paula Mae Schwartz. Wechsler and the Schwartzes have worked together recently to produce the adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s “The Road.” More on the project, and who’s involved after the jump.

“The Host,” not to be mistaken with Joon-ho Bong’s stellar 2006 monster movie, tells the story of a not-so-distant future in which well-meaning alien parasites called “Souls” have arrived on Earth and taken hold of what’s left of the human race. The adaptation is being penned by Andrew Niccol, writer of “Gattaca” and “The Truman Show,” so expectations will be certainly be high. Or low, because they’re Meyer’s words first. Your call.

Also, according to Variety, these three producers have been petitioning with Meyer’s UTA reps for a while now to acquire the project, so they’re certainly passionate. I think it’ll be interesting to see if this passion translates into a watchable film.
