Twilight author Stephenie Meyer is continuing her foray into producing movies. Having just released a clip from Austenland yesterday, today it was revealed Meyer is adapting the book Anna Dressed in Blood.

The young adult ghost tale from Kendare Blake follows Cos, who kills the dead for a living. But in the instance of Anna, who kills anyone who enters her home, he finds a ghost “in curses and rage, a ghost like he’s never faced before. She still wears the dress she wore on the day of her brutal murder in 1958: once white, now stained red and dripping with blood. Since her death, Anna has killed any and every person who has dared to step into the deserted Victorian she used to call home.” (Description provided by Amazon.)

Meyer will produce along with Fickle Fish, and they have begun working on the film. While the deal has not been officially announced, the news was initially uncovered by the Los Angeles Times. Our own resident book expert Jen says she “loves, LOVES” this story.

In addition to Austenland and Anna Dressed in Blood, Meyer serves as producer on the book to film adaptation of The Host opening this March.

Anna Dressed in Blood has a 4.5 star average on Amazon, suggesting a very warm reception from its readers. It is the first in a three part series.

    This is such a great book, I hope they don’t mess it up and make it like twilight.

  • Lotte

    This is a headline, I truly never expected to read.

    Loved the book. We shall see how it works as a movie.

  • Amy F

    why can she just take and screw up whatever she wants now? they could leave it to people who are actually good at writing but instead they seem to only think about who has in the past been good at making money. >.<

  • Tessa

    Has she even bothered to write the sequel to the Host yet? Shouldn’t that be her main priority and leave movie production to actual movie producers?

    • Sia

      Why ? Maybe’s she’s learned something about producing and enjoys it and makes money WHO ARE YOU GOD ? If you look to see what a producer does maybe you’ll understand If she writes she writes get off her and take care of your own life.

    This kills me. Can’t we have someone decent adapting “Anna” into a movie. Cas is probably going to be a pretty boy…and don’t even get me started on how much Anna could be ruined. Why can’t Stephanie Meyer just quit. I had dreams for this book. It really could be a terrifying movie…if it was given a brilliant team

      Like how they ruined silent hill 2

      Shes just funding the project..you should thank her if this movie is successful.

    Read the book last night after seeing this article.
    Just because I remember Stephanie Meyer suggested The Hunger Games

    I just wanted to give it a try, read the first few chapters because I was in the middle of another book (Alpha&Omega #1) and I accidentally read the entire thing because it was so good.
    I’ve never enjoyed actually scary literature but this was something new and different.

    Would make a hell of a scary movie.

    FORCED myself to go to sleep after because my eyes were hurting so bad (bad eyes and reading on iPhone) instead of reading the second one.
    But il probably read it today :)

    Great book and thank you to Stephanie Meyer, (for producing the movie, thus getting this article on) Hypable, Andrew (for posting) and Jen (for raving and being the final straw. I HAD to try it)
    :)

      Wow that was super long and psycho. Sorry! lol

      • Alyssamz

        Also… I don’t get all the Meyer hate here.
        She’s a producer. Not a director.
        She could be simply giving notes and paying for stuff.
        Not running the show.
        AND even if she was, she’s part of a TEAM.
        If the movie was bad it wouldn’t be any one persons fault…

    I think Stephanie Meyer will do a great job. She has such passion for what she likes and what she does. This is not Twilight and I am sure that will be reflected in the movie. By the way I love Twilight.

    I hope people realize that a producer is NOT a director, NOT a script writer… it’s someone who has a passion for something and wants to put money into it and help it take form. Producers do not have the kind of input everyone seems to think they have. Most producers notes are taken with a grain of salt. Honestly, all of the hate for SM is ridiculous. Just give it a break already.

      Thanks, it also burns me that people who never make movies or write books feel they are experts and are critical of people who do. Old saying, “if you’re so smart how come you’er not rich?”

    Wait….what?!?!?

  • Sia

    Oh Twilight haters come out nothing do huh ? Pathetic. The lady is good at what she does and your just hating because you hate Twilight and don’t want her to go places TOO LATE SHE’S THERE BABY AND I’M LOVING SEEING YOU HATERS SQUIRM !

    • Hannah

      Look, I don’t like Twilight. I don’t actually hate HER, just her books. I don’t think she seems like the nicest person ever, but I haven’t heard both sides of the story, so I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt. I just worry that she won’t stay true to this book, which I actually like. I don’t like her writing style, and I just want this to be like the book, and not a Twilight remake. I don’t mind that she’s famous, and even though I don’t like her that much, or her writing, I’m happy that’s she’s successful. I just wish she was a little kinder to critics and fans alike, and I wish she would deflate her head a bit, that’s all.

      • Joysshi

        Just because Stephenie’s going to produce it doesn’t mean it’s going to be a complete remake of Twilight.

  • Hannah

    Oh no, this is actually a good book! Don’t let Smeyer ruin it like she ruined vampires, were wolves and the English language!

  • bbm

    The guys name is Cas not Cos :)
