As in over…never gonna happen. After fans have seen “Twilight” and read all 4 of the books in the vampire series, they are clearly hungry for more. While Stephenie Meyers, author of this phenomenon, was in the process of writing a 5th addition to the books a leak of the unfinished manuscript put a screeching halt to “Midnight Sun.” The project was basically a retelling “Twilight” but from Edward Cullen’s point of view.
Rumors that she was still going to go on with the project now conflict allegations that the project is forever done.
According to LA Times:
“Are avid “Twilight” fans killing the next book? Stephenie Meyer is reportedly so upset about the online leak of her work on “Midnight Sun” that she hasn’t written another word and she’s not gonna. Ever.
She’s working on another novel that is not written from Edward Cullen’s point of view, like “Sun” is.”
Read into that statement what you will. Other reports confirm that she is working on several different manuscripts which are non-Cullen-vampire related. A rep for the writer confirmed via NY Daily:
“Nothing’s changed,” a rep for the author confirms to us. “Stephenie has no plans to move forward with ‘Midnight Sun’ at this time.”
The author herself explains on her site that she is beyond upset and has had the desire to touch the project since the leak that happened in August 2008.
Per Stephenie Meyers:
“So where does this leave Midnight Sun? My first feeling was that there was no way to continue. Writing isn’t like math; in math, two plus two always equals four no matter what your mood is like. With writing, the way you feel changes everything. If I tried to write Midnight Sun now, in my current frame of mind, James would probably win and all the Cullens would die, which wouldn’t dovetail too well with the original story. In any case, I feel too sad about what has happened to continue working on Midnight Sun, and so it is on hold indefinitely.”
So there. See what happens we are greedy and impatient. It’s like being put in the naughty chair for time out.
