The only way to properly send off one massively popular movie franchise is to start another.

The Twilight Saga comes to a close this weekend with the release of Breaking Dawn Part 2, so where will the fanbase turn for more fantastical love triangles between beautiful young characters from completely different worlds? Twilight author Stephenie Meyer is hoping that fans look no further than the upcoming adaptation of The Host, based on her novel of the same name. All Meyer and writer-director Andrew Niccol (In Time) will have to do is sell Twilight fans on a sci-fi story that involves humanity being possessed by invading alien "souls," while still utilizing a tragic central character who has two men in love with her. Should be easy. After all, if Meyer can create a rabid franchise by dabbling in the world of vampires and werewolves, why can't she find the same success in the world of parasitic alien creatures who take over human souls?
