Max Irons has apparently landed a role in The Host.
The Red Riding Hood star - son of distinguished actor Jeremy - is said to be starring as Jared in the big-screen adaptation of Stephanie Meyer's sci-fi novel, written and directed by In Time's Andrew Niccol, according to Entertainment Weekly.
Saoirse Ronan is already on board as Melanie, a young woman whose body is invaded by an alien named Wanderer, and whom Jared is in love with.
Jake Abel is set to play Ian, a young man who is in love with Wanderer.
Shooting is expected to begin in February in Louisiana and New Mexico, for a release in spring 2013.
