In what's sure to anger some of her hardcore fans, Twilight author Stephenie Meyer says she is "so over" the franchise that made her a household name.
In a new Q & A interview with Variety, Meyer reveals she is more interested in being a producer these days (she serves as producer for the upcoming film Austenland starring Keri Russell), and has no interest whatsoever in returning to the vampire phenomenon.
"I get further away every day. I am so over it," she says bluntly. "For me, it’s not a happy place to be."
Though she doesn't completely close the door on the series.
"What I would probably do is three paragraphs on my blog saying which of the characters died," she says. "I’m interested in spending time in other worlds, like Middle-Earth."
As for producing the highly anticipated Austenland, she admits that the experience was a lot different than producing the last two Twilight films (Breaking Dawn Part I and II) and The Host, since for once, she wasn't the original author of the material.
"There was zero pressure, since this was not my novel. It’s a comedy first and foremost, so there was a lot of laughter," she says. "Keri was five months pregnant and the least pregnant woman I’ve ever seen."
And can her fans expect any new novels from her soon?
"I’m kind of decompressing and figuring that out," she replies when asked about what she's writing now.
