    If you're hoping Stephenie Meyer will one day make the joyous announcement that she's adding more to the Twilight franchise—don't hold your breath.

    During an interview with Variety, the author confirmed that she has moved on from the famous vampire saga, even if fans have not.

    "I get further away every day," she said in response to possibly making a return to Twilight. "I am so over it. For me, it's not a happy place to be."

    However, Meyer admitted that the door is "not completely" closed on that.

    "What I would probably do is three paragraphs on my blog saying which of the characters died. I'm interested in spending time in other worlds, like Middle-Earth," she added.

    The writer has decided to focus on being a producer, after first taking on that role for the last two Twilight films and The Host. Currently, Meyer is working on the first release from her company Fickle Fish Films.

    Austenland is a comedy that stars Keri Russell, who plays an avid Jane Austen fan that plans a vacation at a country house steeped in the world of the 19th century British romance writer. The film, adapted from Shannon Hale's novel of the same name, is directed by first-time helmer Jerusha Hess and is slated for an Aug. 16 release.
