Stephenie Meyer options tome ‘Dark Hall’

'Twilight' producer Wyck Godfrey also in talks to produce

“Twilight” scribe Stephenie Meyer and Meghan Hibbett’s Fickle Fish Films have optioned young-adult suspense tome “Down a Dark Hall” by novelist Lois Duncan and will produce a feature-film adaptation.

Duncan’s 1974 novel revolves around Blackwood boarding school and its mysterious students. Ensnared in the chilling world is new student Kit Gordy, who must unravel Blackwood’s haunted and tragic history before it’s too late. “Twilight” producer Wyck Godfrey is also in talks to produce.

Meyer has taken on more film fare since her books became a global publishing and feature-film phenomenon. She recently produced and financed the Jerusha Hess-helmed “Austenland,” a romantic comedy about a woman who travels to a Jane Austen theme park to find her perfect man. That pic, starring Keri Russell and Jane Seymour, is in post-production but is not yet slated for release.

Duncan has penned a number of novels that have made their way to the bigscreen, including “Hotel for Dogs” and “I Know What You Did Last Summer.”

Myman Abel Fineman Fox Greenspan Light reps Meyer. Deal for Duncan was made on behalf of Sterling Lord Literistic by Hotchkiss and Associates.
