Susanna White Will Adapt Stephenie Meyer’s The Host

Susanna White (the director of Nanny McPhee Returns) will adapt Stephenie Meyer‘s adult novel, The Host.

Here’s more from Variety: “Nick Wechsler will produce the indie through his eponymous banner, along with Chockstone Pictures’ Steve Schwartz and Paula Mae Schwartz. Given the B.O. muscle of the Twilight franchise, the marketability of Meyer’s name is expected to draw interest from distributors.”

In 2009, Meyer’s website named Andrew Niccol as both director and screenwriter for the production, but Row Three recently reported that Niccol will only serve as a writer. Meyer published The Host in 2008. She has discussed the idea of following up The Host with two sequels, The Soul and The Seeker.
