With the final installment of the "Twilight" franchise fast approaching, it's time for the woman who started it all, scribe Stephenie Meyer, to think about what she'll do with herself in a post-Edward world. And, apparently, what she really wants to do is direct produce.
According to Variety, Meyer has partnered up with Meghan Hibbett's Fickle Fish Films to option Lois Duncan's young adult suspense novel "Down A Dark Hall," to produce as a feature film. The tale, which was first released back in 1974 (you see, YA fiction is not a new concept!), focuses on the tragic past of Blackwood boarding school and its mysterious students.
At the center of the tale is new student Kit Gordy, who must unravel Blackwood's history before it's too late. Too late for what? We don't know, but it sounds exciting.
Rounding out the young adult-novel-turned-feature-film-dream-team (a name we just made up) is fellow "Twilight" alum, Wyck Godfrey, who's also in talks to produce.
This won't be Meyer's first foray into film production, however. She already produced and financed "Austenland," a romantic comedy about a woman who travels to a Jane Austen theme part to find her perfect man… not sure that's such a great place to look, but hey, to each her own.
"Down A Dark Hall," however, seems more up Meyer's alley what with the teen angst and all—but only time will tell whether this novelist has the chops to become a production power player.
Though something tells us she does.
