    Max Irons Lands Other Male Lead Opposite Saoirse Ronan In Andrew Niccol's 'The Host'

     "In Time" didn't quite provide the comeback that some were hoping for for writer/director Andrew Niccol, who penned "The Truman Show" and directed "Gattaca." Despite playing in the helmer's wheelhouse of big-idea sci-fi, the film was poorly received, ...
