Stephenie Meyer on ‘Twilight’: ‘I Am So Over It’

Producer now focused on Keri Russell starrer 'Austenland'

Twilight” author Stephenie Meyer is done with the vampire franchise.

I get further away every day,” she told Variety. “I am so over it. For me, it’s not a happy place to be.”

Meyer has been promoting the Aug. 16 release of whimsical comedy “Austenland,” which she produced through her Fickle Fish banner. Keri Russell stars as a die-hard Jane Austen fan who plans a vacation at a resort steeped in the world of the 18th century British romance writer.

Fickle Fish is developing adaptations of a pair of ghost stories — Lois Duncan’s “Down a Dark Hall” and Kendare Blake’s “Anna Dressed in Blood” — but she won’t completely rule out ever writing about “Twilight” again.

“What I would probably do is three paragraphs on my blog saying which of the characters died,” she noted. “I’m interested in spending time in other worlds, like Middle Earth.”
