Plans To Present Film In A Way That Has 'Never Been Done Before'



Just what does Francis Ford Coppola have installed for audiences with his upcoming film "Twixt Now And Sunrise"? Speaking with Empire, the legendary director has tantalized us with another little tidbit noting that "if I can present it the way I want to, it is something that's never been done before."

The director has previously noted that the film would feature 3D technology as "a brief dramatic segment that serves the story, rather than the typical two-hour, multiplex gimmick" but surely that's only the tip of the iceberg for what he describes as a "part personal film, part Gothic romance, part Halloween show." Could Coppola simply be pulling out an old trick he had planned for the sci-fi epic "Megalopolis" which was originally envisioned with a whole act in 3D where "the idea was that the film told the audience when to put the glasses on"?

Or could it be something related to Coppola's collaboration with electronic musician Dan Deacon whose partnership with Coppola (he's on board to score) was noted to be something “on a larger level [with] details of which will be announced soon"? Just remember that Deacon was recruited by Coppola based on his an on-air discussion he had regarding "unique live performance experience – how I arrange my performances and re-contextualize the space, the audience-participation aspect..." Just food for thought but we're definitely intrigued by where all this could go.

Little itself is also known about the story of 'Twixt' which has only been compared to "the imagery of Hawthorne or Poe." There's fascinating cast in place that keeps us excited, which boasts the likes of Val Kilmer, Joanne Whalley, Bruce Dern, Ben Chaplin, Don Novello, David Paymer, Coppola favorite Alden Ehrenreich and Elle Fanning, who'll play a ghost.

"The only rule [for his films] is that it is beautiful and that people are affected and moved by it," Coppola concluded. "My daughter has taught me how to look for what I want to express with less - with less talk and more with what I feel. I feel a lot of things, but in order to try and express them, sometimes I think I go too far."

"Twixt Now And Sunrise" was reportedly being prepped for a Halloween release date, which is now surely only affirmed by the helmer's description of the film as a "Halloween show." No word yet if it will do any festival circuit rounds.
