Stephenie Meyer To Produce a Lois Duncan Adaptation

via stepheniemeyer.com
It looks as though Twilight author Stephenie Meyer isn't done putting out films quite yet. And I'm not talking about the final Twilight movie that's expected in theaters later this year or the adaptation of Meyer's adult book The Host that is currently being filmed in New Mexico - though she's certainly been very busy with both projects.

No, I'm talking about Stephenie Meyer's involvement in bringing Lois Duncan's young-adult suspense novel Down a Dark Hall to life as a feature film.

First published in 1974, Down a Dark Hall is a story about Kit Gordy, a young girl who attends an exclusive boarding school where she is one of only four students.  Other Lois Duncan adaptations include I Know What You Did Last Summer and Hotel For Dogs.

This project will be Meyer's second project through Fickle Fish Films, a production company she created alongside Meghan Hibbett has a vehicle to create literature-related films and media. Fickle Fish's first project, an adaptation of Shannon Hale's Austenland, is currently in post-production.

I'm thinking it's time I stop holding my breath for a sequel to The Host. What do you think?
