Summit Entertainment has set Catherine Hardwicke to direct Twilight, an adaptation of the novel that hatched Stephenie Meyer’s bestselling young adult fantasy series.
Melissa Rosenberg (Step Up) will write the script. Maverick Films’ Mark Morgan will produce with Greg Mooradian.
Twilight tells the story of 17-year-old Bella, who moves to a small town to live with her father, and is drawn to a pale mysterious classmate who comes from a family of vampires.
Meyer has published two more installments of the series, “New Moon” and “Eclipse,” with two more titles coming.
