After a long, long absence from filmmaking, legendary "The Godfather" helmer Francis Ford Coppola resurfaced a few years back with some of his most impressive works since the early 1980s. We didn't wholeheartedly adore either "Youth Without Youth" or "Tetro," but there was still much to admire, and furthermore, they felt like Coppola had returned to filmmaking with the vigor and energy of a young man, suggesting much more to come.

After a long, long absence from filmmaking, legendary "The Godfather" helmer Francis Ford Coppola resurfaced a few years back with some of his most impressive works since the early 1980s. We didn't wholeheartedly adore either "Youth Without Youth" or "Tetro," but there was still much to admire, and furthermore, they felt like Coppola had returned to filmmaking with the vigor and energy of a young man, suggesting much more to come.

His next film, "Twixt," continued that approach; an experimental, partly 3D horror film starring Val Kilmer and Elle Fanning, which Coppola planned to take on the road, remixing the film live with an iPad. It was an impressively forward-thinking approach for the veteran filmmaker, even if, according to most of the reviews, including our own, it worked better in theory than in practice. The film never had a real release, though it did pop up on one screen on the West Coast in August, and now word has arrived from Bleeding Cool that the picture will be arriving on Blu-ray and DVD via 20th Century Fox later this year.

The film's already cropped up on home video elsewhere in the world, but this'll be the first chance for a wide audience to get their eyes on what Coppola was up to. As you might imagine, it won't be in 3D, or interactive, but Coppola fans will at least be pleased to get to see some of it, and we're at least looking forward to the chance to check out the Dan Deacon score, although at present, there's no release date for the release. In the meantime, Coppola was said to be preparing a return to the mainstream with a new studio picture; hopefully firm word will be along about that soon.
