Stephenie Meyer reveals she’s working on ‘The Host’ sequel

Tonight in Philadelphia Stephenie Meyer announced that she is currently writing the The Host sequel.

The novel will be entitled The Seeker. Both Max Irons and Jake Abel who are on tour with Meyer said they would love to work on The Host sequel.

William Hurt and Diane Kruger also star in the adaptation, which is looking to capitalize on the Twilight audience as it hits theaters next month, March 29.

When an unseen enemy threatens mankind by taking over their bodies and erasing their memories, Melanie Stryder will risk everything to protect the people she cares most about — Jared, Ian, her brother Jamie and her Uncle Jeb, proving that love can conquer all in a dangerous new world.

The Seeker has been rumored to be the The Host sequel for years but this is the first time Meyer has confirmed it. The Host has always been described as a trilogy with The Seeker and The Soul respectively being books two and three.

Meyer is currently touring the country with Jake Abel and Max Irons the stars of the film. The Host will open on March 29. Do you think The Host will be the next Twilight?
