"The Host" hits theaters this week, and for many fans it's a chance to see whether the popular Stephanie Meyer novel can become a pop culture phenomenon like "The Twilight Saga" did before it.
But for other film buffs, "The Host" represents something else: The continuing development of star Saoirse Ronan, who famously earned an Oscar nomination for 2007's "Atonement" at the age of 13. Will "The Host" finally turn her into an A-lister and ensure that she avoids the child star curse ... or will she become the latest of Oscar's children to experience their biggest career highlight before being legally able to drive?

All of the week's hot casting news in one fell swoop ...
• Seth MacFarlane has scored quite the cowgirl! The "Ted" funnyman has rounded up the gorgeous (and quite funny herself) Charlize Theron to star in his new film, "A Million Ways to Die in the West," a self-described "Blazing Saddles"-type comedy about a sheepish farmer who chickens out of a gunfight and sees his girlfriend leave him.

• Colin Farrell and Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain are going classical with "Miss Julie," director Liv Ullmann's take on August Strindberg's 19th-century stage play about the sexually-charged battle of wills between a wealthy socialite and one of her head servants, with the servant's fiancee popping up every now and then to make things even more interesting. Samantha Morton is also set to star. [The Hollywood Reporter] Get More »

This week: Stifler and the rest of his East Great Falls gang reunite for a wild weekend of MILFs and memories in "American Reunion," the third and final sequel in the theatrical "American Pie" comedy franchise.
"True Blood" star Anna Paquin has learned a thing or two about the dark side during her days in Bon Temps, and it will certainly come in handy in her latest role.
Indie Wire reports that the actress joins "Thor" star Tom Hiddleston and Elijah Wood in the upcoming big-screen adaptation of Elliot Chaze's 1953 noir novel "Black Wings Has My Angel."
The project started being shopped around Hollywood in 2007 with Wood as a producer, but the "Lord of the Rings" star quickly learned that getting into Mordor movies made isn't always easy, although a little persistence pays off.
Three years later, he took a role in the production, only to see it shelved until now. Get More »
Author Charlaine Harris, whose writings the HBO show "True Blood" is based around, has stated that main character/telepath/world-class hottie Sookie Stackhouse will never pull a Bella Swan and become a vampire herself despite being very much immersed in their neck-sucking shenanigans.
The show's star Anna Paquin, however, is planning to engage the enemy at close range when she co-stars with an ex-"Twilight" bloodsucker in an upcoming indie pic. Get More »
You know what they say: Better late than never. And never has that been more true about a film than for "Margaret."
That's because the film, which stars Anna Paquin, Matt Damon and Mark Ruffalo, was filmed way the hell back in 2005.
In fact, it was so long ago that Paquin actually plays a high school student. But now, after six long years stuck in litigation, the first trailer for "Margaret" has finally arrived. Get More »
Two Hollywood heavyweights are heading back to school, er, sort of.
Anna Paquin, "True Blood"'s darling, and Ryan Phillippe, last seen in "The Lincoln Lawyer," are teaming up to star in the upcoming feature "Straight A's."
Directed by James Cox ("Wonderland") and written by Dave Cole, the film is about former flames, reunited, in totally horrible less than stellar circumstances. Get More »
Well, better six years later than never, right?

Well, well -- look at what a few years will do. Seems like just yesterday Freddie Highmore was scampering around movies like "Finding Neverland" and "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" as a sweet, precocious youngster. But in "The Art of Getting By," co-starring Emma Roberts, he's back and (almost) all grown up.
We're overjoyed to see the fantastically talented Highmore return to the limelight, and more to the point, join the legion of famous former child stars who've reinvented their careers as adults. Check out the members of this esteemed club.
