Based on the movies Andrew Niccol has directed this seems an odd choice - do you think he'll change the story somehow?

I loved Lord of War, and Gattaca and The Truman Show were pretty good too, so I'd go see The Host. I won't read the book though.

Then I should really get into reading The Host, because I love watching movies after reading the book!

Oh, whee this would be fantastic!!!

Well, the Dream Cast always entails: Ian Somerhalder as Ian, Amber Heard or Elisabeth Harnois as Wanda, Jensen Ackles as Jared and Sophia Bush as Melanie! :)

I just re-read this book (for what seems like the 10th time). I really really *really* hope they cast Ian Somerhalden (Damon in the Vampire Diaries) as Ian, too. I think he'd be perfect!!!

I never thought about Jensen Ackles as Jared... He does deserve a good movie... Might be too old, though. Plus, I really hate Jared. Poor Jensen shouldn't get saddled with playing such a, er, not nice person. :p

I'd watch anything with Ian Somerhalden!

@Brooke! lol
Actually both Jensen and Ian were born in the same year 1978! XD
And everythingis relative in the movie, with the proper lens, make-up, attire anyone could look like almost any age! XD

A girl can hope! I heart both Jensen and Ian!
