Stephenie Meyer Goes From ‘Twilight’ to Rom-Com

With Twilight on its last two movies, an author’s got to do something when it all comes to an end! Stephenie Meyer, who wrote all four Twilight books, is starting up early – this time she’s venturing into the world of producing. The author, who produced the last two Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn movies, is attached to the upcoming film Austenland, a romantic comedy based on the book by Shannon Hale, reports Perez Hilton.

The plot of the Jane Austen-inspired movie revolves around “a woman whose obsession with the PrideandPrejudice 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.”

Sounds like a cross between Sense and Sensibility and Fatal Attraction – only romantic comedy style!

The film is set to begin filming this week in the U.K, and so far, it stars Keri Russell, Jane Seymour, Bret McKenzie, J.J. Field, Jennifer Coolidge, Rupert Vansittart and James Callis. This would be the fourth film Stephenie has produced – she’s also producing an adaptation of another book she wrote, The Host.

Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 hits theaters November 18, 2011.

What do you think of Stephenie Meyer working on a non-Twilight movie? Do you think she’ll make a good movie producer, or should she stick to writing?
