Stephenie Meyer, the author of the “Twilight” series has sold the screen rights to her first adult novel The Host.

Variety reports that “Gattaca” director Andrew Niccol will write and direct the film.

The Host is a love story set in the future and focuses on an alien parasite who finds a home in a dying human. Sounds like a far leap from her daylight-prone pretty-boy vampires.
