The HostDiane Kruger, whose film credits include Inglourious Basterds and Unknown, plays The Seeker, an alien searching for the remaining traces of humanity in The Host. Although The Seeker is from a peaceful race, their possession of human bodies is definitely a hostile takeover. With a young woman named Melanie Stryder (Saoirse Ronan) caught in a battle of wills with the alien who’s trying to take over her soul, The Seeker is on a mission to ensure Melanie loses her battle.  Based on Stephenie Meyer’s best selling novel, The Host should be a hit when it opens in theaters March 29th.

For Kruger, taking part in The Host was a no-brainer thanks to the talent involved. “I’m a Twilight fan,” said Kruger. “But I love Andrew NiccolGattaca is one of my favorite films of all time and I thought (The Seeker) was really interesting.  I didn’t read the book before they sent me the script…I thought it was really well written.  I didn’t see that coming at all and I thought it would be something different and I wanted to be part of the cool kids club.  I really enjoyed and I thought it was different and fun.”
