In the upcoming Andrew Niccol film The Host, Diane Kruger (Inglourious Basterds) plays an alien named Seeker who becomes obsessed with tracking down a band of rebellious humans who continue to mount a resistance against the invasion of Earth.  At the heart of Seeker's hunt is Melanie Stryder (Saoirse Ronan), a human who continues to rebel against the Soul implanted in her body and who may inadvertantly lead the Seeker to eradicating the humans once and for all. During a recent press event, we were able to interview Kruger about The Host, her playing a somewhat antagonistic character for the first time, the film's aesthetics and Niccol's vision, as well as Meyer's input on Kruger's character.  She also updated us on the progress of National Treasure 3, as well as her upcoming arthouse film The Green Blade Rises and the status of her new FX drama, The Bridge.  Hit the jump to watch the interview. »
