Jake Abel: The Host's Ian!

Jake Abel is in final negotiations to star as Ian in the upcoming film adaption of The Host, Deadline reports.

The 23-year-old actor will star as Ian, a “menacing young man who brutalizes Wanderer (Saoirse Ronan) before falling in love with her.”

The Host summary: Melanie Stryder (Ronan) is one of the last humans putting up a fight against an alien species called Souls. These parasites invade human bodies, fuse to each person’s consciousness and systematically erase their personalities.

This marks the second film Jake and Saoirse have done together. They starred in The Lovely Bones in 2009.
