Saoirse Ronan Cast In ‘The Host’

Deadline Hollywood learned today that Hanna’s Saoirse Ronan has been cast as Melanie/Wanda in Stephanie Myer’s The Host.  No other casting announcements have been made, but MTV believes more news on the film will be released at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.

Methinks Ronan’s all warmed up to play both Melanie and Wanda in The Host since she’s already shown us what she’s capable of- Deplorable little twit in Atonement, helpful yet deceased teen in The Lovely Bones, miniature assassin in Hanna-yup, she’s good to play both.

Though Melanie’s character is described as tan with dark hair, we still think Ronan can pull it off despite her pale complexion and light hair.  That’s why the good lord invented hair dye and spray tans.

Ronan made an appearance at last night’s MET Costume Institute Gala in a red Rodarte gown.
