The publication reports that Sinead Daly, who's notably worked on series such as The Walking Dead: World Beyond, is set to write the script for the adaptation but the project is still in its early stages.

Of course, the masses were first captivated by Bella and Edward's story when Meyer's top-selling books first hit the shelves back in 2005.

The Twilight-mania then reached a fever pitch when Kristen Steward and Robert Pattinson were famously cast in the Hollywood movies in 2009.

It feels like 2009 all over again! What are your thoughts on the TV adaptation?
