Lois Duncan Tweets Down a Dark Hall Status

Remember a few weeks ago when we told you that Stephenie Meyer’s production company (Fickle Fish Films) was in talks to option the Lois Duncan classic Down a Dark Hall? Well, Lois Duncan Just updated her Twitter to say it’s now official.

It should be noted that just because a script is optioned, it doesn’t mean it swings into production right away. Something like 85-90% of the items that Hollywood options are not made for decades or even made at all. The original option for the Twilight movie lapsed when it was an MTV/Paramount venture and then Summit picked it up.

We have no inside info here, but as a small company just getting its feet wet in the business, it would seem to us that Fickle Fish Films would likely make the film and not shelf it for years on end. Fickle Fish Film’s first project is the yet to be released Austenland that was filmed in the UK last July.

The book is currently $7.99 on kindle and $2.99 for a paperback on Amazon, hard to go wrong there.


  1. Wish that people would spell Stephenie’s name correctly…

    • Amanda B. says

      I, too, was shocked that she didn’t get it right, but Lois Duncan is aces, so I’ll let that one slide. 🙂

  2. My favorite books when I was in the 5th grade. First “scary” book. I loved it! Can’t wait to see what Stephenie does with it. Hopefully, as a writer, she’ll recognize how much fans prefer movies staying with the book.
