Max Irons Joins The Host

Following yesterday’s news that “The Lovely Bones” actor Jake Abel was the front runner for the role of Ian in Stephenie Meyer’s upcoming big screen adaptation of “The Host”, Deadline is reporting that “Red Riding Hood” actor Max Irons has landed the role of Jared.

Irons beat out several actors for the role including Liam Hemsworth (“The Hunger Games”), Kit Harington (“Game of Thrones”) and Jai Courtney (“One Shot”).

Filming will begin in February in Louisiana and then New Mexico and will mark one of the first productions for Open Road Films, a young distribution company backed by AMC and Regal theater chains.

“The Host” is scheduled to be released on March 23, 2013. Saoirse Ronan will play Melanie Stryder, a young woman who shares her body with an alien force known as Wanderer.

Andrew Niccol (“In Time”, “Gattaca”) will direct.
