Val Kilmer, Elle Fanning & Bruce Dern Star



While he's set to receive a honorary Oscar next month, Francis Ford Coppola continues with his late-career burst of energy, as he has already quietly begun filming his third feature in four years.

Titled "Twixt Now And Sunrise," the film is based on a short story by Coppola and while details are being kept under wraps, it is said to be in the horror/thriller vein. The cast is an intriguing one with Val Kilmer, Elle Fanning (also starring in daughter Sofia Coppola's "Somewhere") and Bruce Dern (who starred in Coppola scribed "The Great Gatsby") leading the way. The horror genre isn't exactly new for Coppola ("Dementia 13," "Bram Stoker's Dracula") but it is a genre he's rarely dipped into, so we're very curious to learn more about this one. Filming is underway in Napa though it's unclear if this is the same project Coppola was in Turkey late last year scouting locations for.

We're pretty inspired by Coppola's late career resurgence and particularly his continuing to work outside the studio system. "Tetro" and "Youth Without Youth," while not perfect, were invigorating, creative and highly ambitious pieces of work; the kinds of films you expect from someone half Coppola's age. Clearly, freed from the various caprices of studios, Coppola has never been more invigorated.
