Twilight author Stephenie Meyer's next big-screen project has a release date.

Distributor Open Road Films announced on Monday that the movie adaptation of Meyer's apocalyptic sci-fi novel The Host will arrive in theatres March 29, 2013.

The Host stars Saoirse Ronan (Hanna in 'The Lovely Bones) in a story of one of the last holdouts against an invasion by entities that take over human minds while leaving their bodies intact.

Published in 2008, The Host is Meyer's follow-up to her best-selling Twilight series, whose final book is being adapted in a two-part movie adaptation, the first instalment debuting this November.

The Host is scheduled to begin shooting in Louisiana and New Mexico next February. Andrew Niccol (Gattaca) wrote the screenplay and is directing.
