I don’t know what I was expecting from Twixt, but this wasn’t quite it. Francis Ford Coppola‘s latest film (formerly Twixt Now and Sunrise) is a gothic thriller of a sort, but one inspired by Hawthorne and Poe, filmed partly in 3D and featuring a soundtrack by analog knob-tweaking electronic musician Dan Deacon.

The film will be previewed at Comic Con later this week — the director’s first visit to the San Diego event since 1991 — and now we’ve got the first image. The on-set snap features, obviously, Mr. Coppola, and also Elle Fanning in costume and makeup seemingly inspired by Delirium from Sandman. See a slightly larger version below. Read More »

I was elated recently to hear that Francis Ford Coppola has quietly gone into production on a new film called Twixt Now and Sunrise. I was elated less at the title and more at the fact that (a) the legendary director keeps on keepin’ on and (b) he’s got Val Kilmer as a lead and (c) Twixt is a sort of genre picture.

Now, thanks to a statement from the director, we know that the film relies upon some “gothic romance/horror subject matter” and that it has additional names in the cast: Ben Chaplin, David Paymer and Tetro‘s Alden Ehrenreich, among others. Read More »
