From one Young Adult author to another, a connection is forged.
Variety reports that TWILIGHT series author, Stephenie Meyer, is making moves to produce a feature version of Lois Duncan's 1974 boarding school horror novel, with TWILIGHT producer Wyck Godfrey alongside.
In DOWN A DARK HALL, "Kit Gordy sees Blackwood Hall towering over black iron gates, and she can't help thinking, 'This place is evil.' The imposing mansion sends a shiver of fear through her. But Kit settles into a routine, trying to ignore the rumors that the highly exclusive boarding school is haunted. Then her classmates begin to show extraordinary and unknown talents. The strange dreams, the voices, the lost letters to family and friends, all become overshadowed by the magic around them.
When Kit and her friends realize that Blackwood isn't what it claims to be, it might be too late."
Duncan previously, and probably most famously, penned the source material for 1997's I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER. No word yet on possible directors, but with Meyer and possibly Godfrey on board, it's pretty much a lock it will be in the same vein as their mega franchise, huh?
Of course, the best part of this news was reacquainting myself with all of the shadowy, gasping melodramatic Lifetime-esque "someone took my baby" faces on the covers of the 1990s Laurel Leaf editions of Duncan's books. The worst part was reacquainting myself with how Stephenie Meyer spells her name.
