A new director has been chosen and announced for the book-to-film adaptation of Twilight series author Stephenie Meyer's The Host, and it is Susannah White.

Per Variety, "Nick Wechsler will produce the indie through his eponymous banner, along with Chockstone Pictures' Steve Schwartz and Paula Mae Schwartz." This, too, is a development, since the last news on the matter from April, 2010 showed no studio attachment at the time. However, the producers remain the same ones who've been on board since the earliest announcement of the film.

Andrew Niccol (The Truman Show, Gattaca), who has written the adapted screenplay for the film, was long presumed to be the shoe-in for director of The Host. However, he's got a couple of other new projects in the works now that may have changed these plans (namely, Dali & I: The Surreal Story and The City That Sailed).

Susannah White has experience directing both television and films, with such work under her belt as Nanny McPhee Returns, Generation Kill (which Kellan Lutz starred in), The Diary Of A Nobody, and Jane Eyre.
