‘Twilight’ Author Developing Movie of Dystopian Tale ‘Not a Drop to Drink’

Fickle Fish Films, the production banner operated by “Twilight” author Stephenie Meyer, has optioned the movie rights to Mindy McGinnis’ debut novel “Not a Drop to Drink.”

The survival story, which was published last year, is set in a world where fresh water is almost nonexistent. The protagonist is a young woman who has been taught to defend her pond against every threat.

“Mindy’s unique voice made for a truly riveting read,” said Meghan Hibbett, Meyer’s producing partner at Fickle Fish. “This story seamlessly blends gritty and dangerous dystopian realism with the larger themes of life vs. survival that we feel audiences will really respond to.”

Meyer wrote the four “Twilight” books and served as a producer on the final two “Twilight” movies. She also was a producer on “The Host,” which was adapted from her sci-fi novel. Fickle Fish’s first movie, the quirky comedy “Austenland,” was released by Sony Classics in August.

The deal for “Not a Drop to Drink” was brokered by UTA for Fickle Fish Films and Adriann Ranta of Wolf Literary Services for McGinnis.
