Twilight creator Stephenie Meyer is producing YA flick Anna Dressed in Blood

Last Updated on August 2, 2021

Brace yourselves… Stephenie Meyer, the author behind the blitzkrieg teen series TWILIGHT, is getting back into the YA film business. She has optioned the rights to the YA series (that's right, seriesANNA DRESSED IN BLOOD, to be directed by Trish Sie (STEP UP ALL IN) from a script by Allison Wood. Cameron Monaghan (AMITYVILLE: THE AWAKENING) and Maddie Hasson (Twisted) are attached to star.

Meyer is only producing and has no part in the writing, so it will be vaguely interesting to see what happens when she has no hand in the story. But who wants to take that risk and find out, really?

Cas Lowood (Monaghan) has inherited an unusual vocation: He kills the dead. So did his father, until he was gruesomely murdered by a ghost he sought to kill. Now, armed with  his father's mysterious and deadly dagger, Cas travels America with his mother and their spirit-sniffing cat. They follow legends and local lore, destroy the angry dead, and keep pesky things like plans for the future and friends at bay. Searching for a ghost the locals call ‘Anna Dressed in Blood’, Cas finds a girl entangled in curses and rage, a ghost like he's never faced before.

Since her death, Anna (Hasson) has killed each and every person who has dared to step into the deserted Victorian house she used to call home, but yet there is something about Cas that compels her to spare his life.  For reasons neither can explain, the two begin to realize that in their opposite, they may have finally found the one person who can help them unravel their complicated pasts, and survive their complicated present.

Says Meyer: “We literally searched the world for over a year to find the perfect actors to bring this genre- spanning story to life. Cameron and Maddie, both so talented individually, together have that rare and extraordinary chemistry that lights up the screen. Trish Sie has the perfect background to visually translate Kendare Blake’s compelling story in a way that speaks to the modern viewer.”
