First Look Photo: Elle Fanning in Coppola's Weird New Horror 'Twixt'
So Francis Ford Coppola is coming to Comic-Con to introduce his new film Twixt. But no one knows what it's about. Well, sort of. We know it's "one part Gothic romance, one part personal film, and one part the kind of horror film that began my career" that was inspired by "a vivid dream [Coppola] had while on a trip to Istanbul." But that doesn't really help, besides leave me more bewildered. One of the stars is Elle Fanning, who plays a character named V, and in this photo looks even odder than I expected. This brand new first look at Twixt comes from Entertainment Weekly. Though I still have no idea what this is about.
This is the only photo for Twixt we've seen yet and it's just a behind-the-scenes shot. Stay tuned for more!
Here's how EW describes the plot: This gothic indie follows a hack horror novelist (Val Kilmer) as ghostly visions in a bizarre small town lead him to explore the murder of a young girl (Elle Fanning). Coppola also says the story is "inspired by the eerie writings of Nathaniel Hawthorne and Edgar Allan Poe." I'm intrigued, but I obviously need to see more from it, especially considering the film is an "interactive experience" that incorporates both 2D and 3D elements. How will that work? At Comic-Con, Coppola will be bringing up performance artist Dan Deacon to show the audience exactly what that means and give us a demo. So there you go. Our first look at the new Francis Ford Coppola horror movie Twixt Now and Sunrise. Intrigued?
