Looking to expand her film portfolio, Stephenie Meyer has optioned the suspense-thriller Dark Hall.

Variety reports that Twilight series producer Wyck Godfrey is in discussions to produce. More:

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.

Have you read Dark Hall? If so, do you think it has movie potential?

    I’m seriously confused about this - what does she know about filmmaking!? Sure, she was slated as helping on some of the Twilight films, but she honestly can’t know that much about it at all. I’m a film student and you can’t just walk in off the street and produce a film – there’s a rediculous amount of work that goes into it, and she would have no training or education as far as it goes to my awareness, so I’m a bit perturbed that she’s optioning things when there’s no evidence she can actually do anything! If she get’s Wyck on board as producer then what will she be doing? ‘producing’? ‘executive producting’?
