Deadline New York has more about Stephenie’s The Host movie adaptation’s progress.
I can report some forward progress on the movie version of The Host, Meyer’s first adult novel which she optioned last fall to producers Nick Wechsler and Steve and Paula Mae Schwartz–the trio behind the terrific screen adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s The Road. Steve Schwartz tells me that Andrew Niccol is working on the third draft of a screenplay which he’s writing in close consultation with the author.
Film.com had an interview with Melissa Rosenberg on New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn’s Potential MPAA Rating.
LL: You’ve been writing Dexter and The Twilight Saga for the better part of four years now. How do you maintain a balance with your personal life? Or is it just about “The jobs are available now, I’m going to work as hard as I can right now because I don’t know if I’ll get another shot like this?”
MR: It’s the second one. There is no life balance. I’ve been working for many years and I’m well aware of how rare an opportunity it is to have even one of these projects available, much less both. It’s an extraordinary opportunity. You just don’t walk away from opportunities like that because you’re too tired or it’s too much work. I had to grasp them both, and fortunately I have a very understanding husband and very understanding friends.
Both Ashley Greene and Jackson Rathbone has expressed their views on how and who they think ‘Breaking Dawn’ should be directed.
LA Times Blog has listed another Oscar-nominated director who might direct ‘Breaking Dawn’ – ‘The Reader’ director Stephen Daldry.
Still, even by those standards, Daldry stands out. He’s been nominated for three Oscars, more than any of the other directors on the short list. In fact, Daldry is the rare filmmaker who’s been nominated for a best directing Oscar for every feature he’s made.
Those credentials make taking on a global teen phenomenon seem unlikely, though there are reasons to think it could work. The director is well-versed in depicting forbidden love (a “Twilight” staple) with “The Reader” and “The Hours.” And he’s adept at themes of family alienation, also a franchise fixture, which ran under “Billy Elliot.” Also, like most of the others, Daldry doesn’t yet have a new film.
Nikki Reed was on Youn Hollywood for her fashion and style and a little bit on the third film, Eclipse.
Harper’s Bazaar has listed Dakota Fanning and Anna Kendrick as Hollywood’s 10 Rising Style Stars! Our girls has always looked gorgeous.
