Though "Breaking Dawn" has captured the hearts of teens and their moms, the brutal, blood-sucking, non-sparkly vampire remains immortal. After Thursday's "Twilight" lovefest, Comic-Con's Hall H was taken over by two vehicles for the meaner brand of the undead with "Fright Night" and "Underworld: Awakening" on Friday. "Fright Night" reimagines the '80s classic, this time casting Colin Farrell as the not-so-neighborly vamp Jerry and Anton Yelchin as the threatened boy next door. Meanwhile, "Underworld: Awakening" revives Kate Beckinsale's role in the franchise as her Selene comes out of a coma after more than a decade.

For a pitch so simple (Jane Austen + The Undead = bidding war!), the adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" has had some problems actually getting made. Originally set to team Natalie Portman and "The Fighter" writer-director David O. Russell, both talent jumped ship, thanks to, respectively, pregnancy and a career resurgence, and backers Lionsgate have subsequently gone through half of Hollywood trying to get the film on screen: Mike White was briefly going to direct, and names from Scarlett Johannson, Bradley Cooper and Tilda Swinton to David Slade, Mike Newell and Christopher Smith were all mentioned as possibilities for some kind of involvement at various points.

One of the biggest remaining question marks of the summer is DreamWorks' remake of cult horror-comedy classic "Fright Night." We'd been feeling mostly positive about the project in advance, with a script from former "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" writer Marti Noxon, "Lars and the Real Girl" helmer Craig Gillespie directing, and a top-notch cast led by the hugely charismatic Anton Yelchin with Colin Farrell, Toni Colette, Imogen Poots, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and David Tennant.

Compares Upcoming Film To Tim Burton's 'Sleepy HollowWith Craig Gillespie now locked down for "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies," everyone can now focus on the actual film rather than the endless process of finding a director.

Russell -- once attached to direct, though he left over budgetary concerns -- has long since left the project, his imprint will still be felt as the script he penned will still be used for the movie.
