SPOILER ALERT: DO NOT READ IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN BREAKING DAWN — PART 2.
Tag: Stephenie Meyer (1-4 of 4)
At a press conference to promote The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2, author Stephenie Meyer suggested that she might add more books to her Twilight world. Naturally, we’ve compiled 10 story lines we’d love to have Meyer continue. Click below to see our list. (Slight spoilers ahead!)
Just when you thought it was over, it’s not!
Twilight author Stephenie Meyer refused to commit to the rumor that she may write additional volumes of her already elaborate teen vampire saga at a press conference for the final film in the series, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2. She did say, however, the idea of more blood, sex and tears in future books wasn’t impossible either.
In fact, she admitted to having already thought through the entire story. “I planned out where it would go for a couple more books,” she said. “So, I knew exactly what would happen,” of the storyline that involves Jake, played by Taylor Lautner in the films, and Renesmee, played by Mackenzie Foy, following the end of Breaking Dawn.
For certain people of, well, let’s just say a certain age, the news that Twilight scribe Stephenie Meyer and Meghan Hibbett’s Fickle Fish Films have optioned Lois Duncan’s Down a Dark Hall with plans for a film adaptation is enough to cause some grown-up shrieking. I know this because one of the shriekers at the EW offices this morning was me.
Because before teens and tweens of all ages got hooked on J.K. Rowling, Suzanne Collins, and — of course — Stephenie Meyer, there was Lois Duncan. If one were going to break down the reading habits of a generation simply, we had Judy Blume to give us comfort through the trials of adolescence and then we had Lois Duncan to scare the stuffing out of us and keep us up all night. You think the Reaping was tense times? Or the search for Horcruxes stressful? Just you go back and pick up some Duncan books, which blend just enough reality with the supernatural to make them absolutely terrifying. (Just seeing the original cover of the book is enough to make this writer’s heart lurch.) “It gave me some serious nightmares when I was 9,” Meyer wrote on her blog this morning, noting that the 1974 novel was a favorite with hers, along with Summer of Fear and Stranger with My Face. Side note: even Lois Duncan titles were scary. READ FULL STORY »
