The Host Will Be A Three Movie Series

Screenwriter and director of The Host, Andrew Niccol, talked to his hometown paper the New Zealand Herald about his current project , In Time, and his next one, The Host.

His next project will be as director and writer of The Host, adapting the best-selling novel by Twilight author Stephanie Meyer about aliens inhabiting human life forms.

“It’s a liberating feeling that I’ll be directing something I haven’t had to make up. It’ll be fun. But I have to say, Stephanie gave me her 650-page book to adapt. That’s a workout to start with but I’ve managed to get it down to a script and there are two more movies coming after the initial movie,” he says. Clearly, he enjoys a challenge. “Well, yes. At first I thought, ‘this is going to be impossible’.”

Stephenie Meyer has always said that she envisioned The Host as a trilogy: The Host, The Seeker, The Soul


  1. No, he’s saying that there will be 2 more movies after the initial one, just as Meyer has it planned to be a trilogy eventually.

  2. I’m pretty sure Stephenie meant that The Host (book) was meant to be the first in a trilogy, not that the one book should be made into 3 movies.

    I’m not a fan of this whole splitting-a-book-into-multiple-movies thing. It doesn’t always aid the story, and it’s mostly a ploy by production companies to milk all the money they can out of the book fans.

    While I absolutely love The Host as a book, I don’t think there is really enough movie-appropriate material to justify 3 movies. About 85-90% of the book happens inside Wanderer/Melanie’s head, and that won’t translate well to film. Books can be and are about thoughts and ideas. Movies have to be about doing.

  3. Hopefully that means Stephenie Meyer is finishing the other books.

  4. Yep its great that another movie is going to be made. Sure would like to read those other two books Stephenie before the movies come out! Shes worse than the guy that writes Game of thrones…she takes her time. You can say shes busy but there are plenty other authors that write like crazy- I’m starting to wonder if shes lost her rhythm! I am going to have to re- read the host just to refresh!
