While the Twilight movies received a lot of criticism over the years, they have still managed to drum up a huge fanbase and make a lot of money, making the Twilight movie franchise one of the most successful ever. Now, Twilight author Stephenie Meyer will see her other book The Host hit the big screen.
The cast of The Host are expected to become huge global superstars, much like the cast of the Twilight movies did. The Host actress Diane Kruger has been talking about the link between the two movies, admitting that she has been hit on by Twilight fans.
Kruger was talking to USA Today at the premiere of The Host, when she explained, "Of course, I knew Twilight was big and all that, but we did a poster signing a couple of days ago here in Los Angeles and thousands of people showed up. I finally realised that this might be a different ball of wax. I got asked out on a date! I got gifts. It was kind of neat."
As well as starring Diane Kruger, The Host also stars Saoirse Ronan, Jake Abel and Max Irons. The Host has been written and directed by Andrew Niccol and is set to hit the big screen in both the US and the UK on March 29.
