Stephenie Meyer On Why She Originally Wanted Matt Damon For The Host And Her Sci-Fi Influences Stephenie Meyer On Why She Originally Wanted Matt Damon For The Host And Her Sci-Fi Influences
It's rare enough to write a book and see it become a hit, and rarer still to see that book become a series of enormously successful movies. But for those movies to be so big that your name itself is enough to sell a film? That's about as exclusive a club as it gets for authors, and Stephenie Meyer is the latest inductee thanks to this weekend's release of The Host, the adaptation of her first novel written after the conclusion of the massive Twilight franchise

With Niccol writing and directing The Host for the big screen, Meyer’s novel was in capable hands. The Gattaca and The Truman Show writer could surely add a little snap and pizzaz to an otherwise tiresome endeavor. As it turns out, however, creating a symbiosis between a character living in the real world and a character stuck in that real world character’s head is more difficult than one might think.

Max Irons has yet to become a household name-- and he knows you might wonder why.

Well, partly because he doesn't want to

Abel, who has been on a relentless press tour with co-star Max Irons (the third point of that love triangle), spoke to me earlier this week on the final leg of the press tour in New York City. I asked him about his experience beating up Mark Wahlberg in The Lovely Bones, how he deals with the crazy pressure of auditioning in a room full of other guys, what it's like to have a role in a would-be franchise that just doesn't work out, and which celebrity got him to wait in line for an autograph

In both movie versions of Invasions of the Body Snatchers, having your body and mind taken over by an alien-- or "pod person"-- was the worst case scenario, and exactly what our heroes spend the entire movie trying to avoid. But what if the invasion was only the beginning, and a heroine found herself living with an alien inside her, but also fighting back?
