Max Irons is getting the role of Jared in The Host, the adaptation of the science fiction novel by Twilight author Stephenie Meyer that will star Saoirse Ronan and be directed by Andrew Niccol, who wrote the script. This comes after Jake Abel became frontrunner to play the role of Ian. The derby for the role of Jared included a small circle of actors including Liam Hemsworth (also a finalist to play Bruce Willis’ son in A Good Day To Die Hard), Kit Harington and Jai Courtney. Open Road acquired the film for domestic distribution. UTA and UK-based Tavistock Wood rep Irons.
