More Notable Happenings at Comic-Con: Francis Ford Coppola, "Snow White," Steven Spielberg and More

Sam Fell and Chris Butler's "ParaNorman." LAIKA Inc.

Comic-Con wrapped up yesterday, but not without a few more noteworthy panels and announcements. For our first half of coverage, go here.

John Cusack as Edgar Allan Poe...

The trailer for "The Raven," Relativity's upcoming thriller-mystery inspired by several of Edgar Allan Poe's works, premiered at Friday's Relativity panel. John Cusack stars as the prolific poet, who teams up with a detective to solve a series of murders. Thompson on Hollywood covered the panel and the Hollywood Reporter revealed the poster.

"Jurassic Park" lives on...

Thompson on Hollywood also reported Spielberg's snuck-in announcement that there will be a "Jurassic Park 4," but not for a few years.

The follow-up to "Coraline"...

We featured animation studio LAIKA's follow-up to "Coraline," the stop-motion zombie comedy "ParaNorman," in our 'Bigger Project of the Day' Friday column. The film isn't due for release until next August, but the creative team was at Comic-Con spreading the word.

Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron duel off...

Thompson on Hollywood also broke news of the lightheartedly combative panel with Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron on their upcoming "Snow White and the Huntsman." Due next June, the film will have to compete with Relativity's untitled Snow White movie, which stars Julia Roberts and Armie Hammer.

Francis Ford Coppola's road show...

Francis Ford Coppola also caused quite the stir at Hall H after announcing that the "Twixt" team plans to hit the road potentially to execute an experiment in collaboration with audiences, editing on-the-go according to the audience's demands. Or it may just be a live performance of the film. According to Coppola, the 'road show' is still in the works. He also announced that the 3D portions of the film will happen in the middle and in the end. Read more at The Playlist.

Alex Proyas's latest...

Filming won’t begin until later this year, but Legendary Pictures made sure to announce news of Alex Proyas’ adaptation of “Paradise Lost.” Says The Playlist, "starring Bradley Cooper as Lucifer himself, the story will focus on the epic battle between Michael and Lucifer that will include aerial warfare in some shape or form."

A little something extra...

And just for laughs, check out Thompson on Hollywood's costume roundup of the event.
