"Niccols, of course, is the mind that brought us both Gattaca and The Truman Show in the late '90s, before following it up with S1m0ne and The Terminal. This sounds like just the story to bring him back to his first tastes of success, and calm fan's nerves before he tackles The Host (Stephenie Meyer's take on scifi). Production is scheduled to begin in late September, so if all stays on track, maybe we can enjoy a whole different fight for immortality come 2011."
With the cast for 'Im.mortal' becoming solid, it is reasonable to assume that it will be Niccol's next project - which means that a 'Host' movie will probably not start filming until 'Im.mortal' is nicely tied up. It looks like Host fans will have to wait a little bit longer than originally anticipated for the movie to get rolling.
