Life after Twilight: Stephenie Meyer options Down a Dark Hall for big screen production

Stephanie MeyerAuthor Stephenie Meyer is preparing for cinematic immortality beyond her wildly popular Twilight films.

Meyer and Megan Hibbett’s Fickle Fish Films have optioned the young adult thriller Down a Dark Hall by Lois Duncan to be made into a feature film. The 1974 novel concerns a student sent to a boarding school haunted by evil ghosts. Wyck Godfrey, a producer on the Twilight films, is in talks to produce.

Meyers’ fans have a lot of trips to the theater to look forward to in the coming years. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 will close out the Twilight series on November 16, and an adaptation of Meyers’ alien novel The Host will invade theaters in 2013. Meyer is also a producer of Austenland, a romantic comedy directed by Napoleon Dynamite helmer Jared Hess, about a woman who hunts for her soul mate at a Jane Austen themed amusement park.
