Diane Kruger Joins Cast of The Host

Stephanie Meyer The Host

Diane Kruger is the latest to join the cast of the upcoming movie adaptation of Twilight author Stephanie Meyer’s novel The Host. Others already signed on to star in the movie include Saoirse Ronan and William Hurt.

The story is set in a world where alien “souls” take over human bodies. Trouble ensues when one rebel host refuses to allow a soul to take over her body.

Kruger will portray The Seeker, whose job is to oversee the conversion of the rebel host and help eradicate the human rebellion.

According to Deadline, despite The Host being a standalone novel, it will be adapted into three movies.

The Host has a planned Spring 2013 release.
