stephenie meyer to produce romantic comedy movie

As HIGHlarious as New Moon was, we're not 100% sure if romantic comedy is the Twilight author's best genre…

Stephenie Meyer, who wrote all the Twilight books and is producing both Breaking Dawn movies, is ready to continue her new career as a producer…but this time with a romcom!

The Twilight author is attached to produce Austenland, a romantic comedy based on the book by Shannon Hale.

The movie's plot revolves around "a woman whose obsession with the Pride and Prejudice character Mr. Darcy is so extreme that it is hurting her love life. But after making her way to an Austen-themed English resort, she eventually falls for an actor playing Darcy."

The movie starts shooting in the U.K. this week, and it stars Keri Russell, Bret McKenzie, Jane Seymour, and Jennifer Coolidge.

Should be inneresting to see how Stephenie's first non-Twilight movie project turns out!

What do U think? Will Stephenie Meyer be a good movie producer?

    Good God, she is a horrid writer!!! Blech!!!!

    You're really quick to judge, you fucking asshole. How would you know if it's not her best genre? Just because she started with twilight doesn't mean she can't do something else. Forget about Australia, we don't want you.

    I think as long as she doesn't WRITE a screenplay for the movie it could be good. Anyways, as much as I'd like to protest the work of a woman who writes no better than my 5-year-old niece and still gets paid a BUTTLOAD for it, I lap up anything Austen, especially British-produced. My fave modern-ish telling is theirs and it starred Gemma Arterton before her Clash of the Titans days, though I can't for the life of me remember the name. It was like a mini-series, and I remember the Darcy in it has been my #2 fave! Though I can't remember his name… 0-0

    Totally off-subject but… what the hell is she wearing?? That necklace? That ill-fitting top? And with all the shit-tons of $$$ she has made off of Twilight, can't girlfriend afford a decent fitting and flattering bra?? Stylist needed pronto!

    What a joke, she is a horrible writer.



  6. 6

    If it prevents her from writing, why not?

    That sounds like it actually be worse than the Twilight crap.

    She should be shot (not literally) for the crap that she produces and the damage she has caused to the vampire/werewolf genre.
    Twilight is utter and total crap.

    Hmm wrote 4 books made into movies split the last book into 2 movies without needing to now she's producing the movies as well….. Damn how many times will the Twilight franchise keep copying the Harry Potter saga. I understand Harry Potter is really successful but I think it has a lot more to do with the fact that the story is actually interesting and they took actors who can actually act!

    Well if Bret is in it it might actually be pretty funny, but I don't know how he'll do without the dynamic he has with Jemaine.

    Fuck this bitch, she can't write if her life depends on it, her writing style is like a high school graduate. Pathetic author that's what she is. GOSH, she is incomparable to JK Rowling.
