This is huge for Coppola AND Comic-Con fans.
Francis Ford Coppola will be returning to Comic-Con for the first time in nearly 20 years.
The director will be showing scenes and music from his upcoming horror film Twixt, which he's described as "one part Gothic romance, one part personal film, and one part the kind of horror film that began my career."
The film stars Val Kilmer, Bruce Dern, Ben Chaplin, and Elle Fanning.
A writer with a declining career arrives in a small town as part of his book tour and gets caught up in a murder mystery involving a young girl. That night in a dream, he is approached by a mysterious young ghost named V. He’s unsure of her connection to the murder in the town, but is grateful for the story being handed to him. Ultimately he is led to the truth of the story, surprised to find that the ending has more to do with his own life than he could ever have anticipated.
Sounds intense. This could be pretty epic if the movie turns out to be just as successful as his other "art house" movies like, oh you know, Apocalypse Now and The Godfather.
Comic-Con ticket holders are some lucky biznitches this year!
