Stephenie Meyer Goes 'Down A Dark Hall'

'Twilight' author to adapt Lois Duncan's novel for the big screen

"Twilight" author Stephenie Meyer and Meghan Hibbett's Fickle Fish Films will producer a feature-film adaption of Lois Duncan's novel "Down a Dark Hall," according to Variety.

Published in 1974, the novel follows Kit Gordy, a 14-year-old girl who must unlock the mysteries of the haunted Blackwood boarding school and its peculiar students.

Wyck Godfrey, who produced "Twilight," is in talks to produce.

Since finding success in feature films, Meyer has eyed more projects to develop for the big screen, including "Austenland," a romantic comedy about a woman in search of her perfect man. Meyer produced and financed the film, which is directed by Jerusha Hess and stars Keri Russell and Jane Seymour.

Meyer's other upcoming films include the Nov. 16 release of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" and her sci-fi novel 'The Host,' which is set to hit the big screen March 29, 2013.

Duncan has two other novels that have enjoyed big screen adaptions: 1997's "I Know What You Did Last Summer" and 2009's "Hotel for Dogs."
