Comic-Con :

Colin Farrell stole the show at the “Fright Night” panel at Comic-Con (just as well since the film’s not exactly tracking through the roof).

A recap of the “True Blood” panel, in which Alan Ball discussed Season 5 (more supernatural creatures coming? What’s left? Bigfoot?), is up here, while there’s an interesting piece on the “Walking Dead” (Season 2) panel here.

Relativity Media has unveiled the first pic of Lily Collins as Snow White in the untitled 2012 release; the flick also stars Julia Roberts and Armie Hammer.

The new “Beavis & Butthead” was previewed at Comic-Con.

Elsewhere :

Seth Rogen and Zac Efron in an untitled action comedy for Universal? Yep. Rogen plays a regular guy who lives near an alpha male fraternity house. Efron is a member of the fraternity, whose raucous behavior wreaks havoc on the other guy’s family life. Sold.

Alex Aja will executive produce and possibly direct the pilot episode for a new “Scanners” TV series that Dimension are developing.

Charlie Kaufman has Steve Carell, Jack Black And Nicolas Cage onboard his next “Frank Or Francis”; atypical of a Kaufman film, the project’s plot is shrouded in secrercy.

Pierce Brosnan and Annabeth Gish will star in A&E Network’s “Bag of Bones”, a two-night, four-hour mini-series, based on Stephen King’s bestselling novel. King-regular Mick Garris will direct.

Imogen Poots (“Fright Night”) will play a young woman who meets Jeff Buckley while working at the concert in “Greetings from Tim Buckley”.
