Stephenie Meyer has something up her sleeve.

The bestselling author of the "Twilight" series isn't giving away any details but she apparently has something special in store for the attendees of this year's San Diego Comic-Con, according to Deadline.

Meyer will be participating in the "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" panel on Thursday morning at the San Diego Convention Center's legendary Hall H, during which she'll be revealing … something related to her next big book-to-movie franchise, "The Host." Meyer and some representatives from Open Road Films are looking to get audiences stoked for what might very well be … well, the next "Twilight."

Our guess is it's going to be a sneak peek at some sweet footage. The film wrapped just a few weeks ago, and we're due for something a little more in-depth than the simple (though admittedly exciting) teaser trailer that featured a brief look at Saoirse Ronan as Melanie Stryder, the human host to a parasitic alien entity that's got a few … emotional complications, shall we say.

NextMovie will be at the "Twilight" panel and we'll be letting you know what's what as soon as Meyer shows her hand. "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" opens on Nov. 16 and "The Host" will invade theaters on March 29, 2013.
