GALLERY: All the Photos From 'The Host' Released So Far

Step aside, vampires and werewolves — 2013 marks the year of the alien takeover with "The Host."

The upcoming adaptation of "Twilight" author Stephenie Meyer's sci-fi novel centers around Melanie (Saoirse Ronan), a human serving as a host for Wanderer, one of the alien Souls that have invaded Earth. Wanderer struggles to maintain power over Melanie, whose strong emotions and memories cause friction between body and soul. Eventually, they fall for the same human guy — played by Max Irons. Diane Kruger is The Seeker, the nasty alien threatening to put a stop to the freaky love triangle.

The film doesn't hit theaters until March 29, 2013, but they're releasing images now. Check out today's new look at Wanda.

Saoirse Ronan in "The Host" Open Road Films

Stephenie Meyer's money-makin' mojo isn't just limited to massive book sales. She's also four for four on resultant box office pillages, and the folks at Open Road Films would love nothing more than for her first non-"Twilight" book-to-screen adaptation, "The Host," to become the next focal point for the rabid attention of her fan base. Rumor has it, Meyer's currently tapping out the long-overdue sequel to her sci-fi novel, too, so there's definitely some franchise potential at play with this story.

As for the first post-vamp adaptation, here's an all-inclusive guide to what we know about the movie so far. Get More »

It looks like the search for The Seeker might be over.

Diane Kruger, who recently played a German actress and undercover Allies ally in Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds," is in talks to join the film adaptation of Stephanie Meyer's non-"Twilight" novel, "The Host," according to Deadline.

Kruger has been offered the role of The Seeker in the romantic sci-fi drama that chronicles the hostile alien takeover of 'The Souls,' parasitic creatures that invade the mind and body of their human hosts. The Seeker is in charge of overseeing the conversion of Mel Stryder (Saoirse Ronan), a rebel soldier whose takeover by the alien known as Wanderer is experiencing some complications due to the parasite's own fascination with Mel's memories -- particularly those involving the men in her life, boyfriend Jared (Max Irons) and brother Jamie.
