Sci-fi master Andrew Niccol takes on The Host

No, I don't follow Twilight and I haven't read any of Stephanie Meyer's books. 

Still, news about the film adaption of The Host interests me for one reason: Andrew Niccol, of In Time fame, will be directing it.

In Time is right on time to OWS

I've always liked the work of Andrew Niccol, who I've nicknamed the minimalist futurist.

On Gattaca and In Time

Andrew Niccol is the writer/director of the under-rated sci-fi film, Gattaca, which starred Ethan Hawke, Uma Thurman, and gave a great early role to Jude Law, along with the writer of The Truman Show.
