New Interview with Stephenie Meyer, Andrew Niccol, and More

Image for Entry 1358451828 The Hollywood Reporter interviewed Stephenie Meyer, Andrew Niccol, Saoirse Ronan, Diane Kruger, and Jake Abel!
THR: Were there worries about how The Host would play out on film?

Meyer: So many people had a hard time with that. The only three people I think who weren't ever worried were me, Nick Wechsler, the producer, and Andrew Niccol, the director, because we all are like, "No. It’s obvious, totally obvious. You just need to have the most brilliant actress in the world, and you don't have a problem." And we got her, so we were really lucky. Saoirse is amazing. When you have an actress of that caliber, especially when not everybody knows who she is yet, I think she's going to blow people away. And then you give her this concept role, it's like a gift. She just loves to be able to do it, and watching her -- oh, my gosh. There's this one scene that has no music: it's a close-up of her face for five minutes, and you cannot look away. I mean, tears streaming down my face the first time I saw it. It was unreal.

Niccol: A lot of people said this can't be done, but I thought, "I kind of like this." Of course, in the book, it's easy to write on the page, but the characters -- you're hearing the thoughts of both of them. What I did to make it more cinematic, I had Wanderer actually speak, which instantly made it better, I think, from a cinematic viewpoint. But, of course, you can read on the page the exchanges.
