Fans' hopes for a new "Twilight" installment are about to bite the dust.

Stephenie Meyer, the woman who penned the vampire saga, says she has moved on from that franchise.

"I get further away from it every day," she told Variety when asked about a possible "Twilight" return. "I'm so over it. For me, it's not a happy place to be."

But she then admitted the door is not "completely closed" on that front.

"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 said.

Meyer is now focusing on being a producer, a role she took on for the final two "Twilight" films and the film adaptation of her other book, "The Host." She's now promoting "Austenland," the first release from her production company, Fickle Fish Films.

"Austenland" stars Keri Russell as a die-hard Jane Austen fan who plans a vacation at a country house steeped in the world of the 19th century British romance writer. The film, based on Shannon Hale's novel of the same name, will be released on Aug. 16.
