Rest easy Con-goers, as Summit Entertainment has just confirmed to Cinematical that there will be no Twilight panel this year. Whether it's because they have no Breaking Dawn footage to show (it won't start shooting until the fall) or because the cast just didn't want to do it, we don't know. What we do know is that Summit will instead be bringing two other films for panels: Red and Drive Angry 3D. Expect Breaking Dawn to pop up next year.
On Thursday, Summit will host a panel for Red, with Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, Karl Urban and Mary Louise Parker in attendance, along with director Robert Schwentke and graphic novel writer Warren Ellis. Aside from a Q&A, they'll be showing off the film's final trailer. On Friday, the Nicolas Cage flick Drive Angry 3D will have a panel with Nic Cage, Amber Heard and director Patrick Lussier. New footage is promised for that one.
Check out the full press release after the jump. So, you Twi-hards pissed there's no Breaking Dawn at Con this year?
