Francis Ford Coppola has played quite a few roles in his five-decade-long career. He started as a low-budget filmmaker in skin flicks and Roger Corman films before becoming an icon with a hugely impressive run of films that started with "The Godfather" and, arguably, ended with "Apocalypse Now." The director struggled throughout the '80s and '90s, first attempting to bankroll his expensive projects through his American Zoetrope label, then as a director for hire in Hollywood after a run of flops nearly bankrupted him. But instead of continuing to struggle within the studio system he instead opted to go independent again.

Francis Ford Coppola Reveals He's Already At Work On A New Script & Says He Doesn't Like 3D Glasses For A Whole FilmReturning to Comic-Con for the first time nearly two decades after he hit San Diego to stump for "Bram Stoker's Dracula," director Francis Ford Coppola made sure it was an event to remember. In what will likely be one of the most talked about presentations when everyone wakes up in a geek hangover on Monday, Coppola unveiled footage from his upcoming gothic horror flick "Twixt," but in an interesting twist that set Twitter on fire, he edited and shaped footage on the fly using an app on his iPad. Though there were some technical problems in what was described as a "dress rehearsal attempt," our man on the ground Jeff Otto described it as a "pretty crazy presentation" that was "definitely original and entertaining."

Well, it's now a bonafide trend. With Daft Punk tuning up "Tron: Legacy," Basement Jaxx working on "Attack The Block" and now Dan Deacon scoring Francis Ford Coppola's "Twixt Now And Sunrise" it looks like electronic beatmakers are the new go-to musicians for ambitious soundtrack work. What's next? Girl Talk scoring a John Sayles film? (Actually, that would fucking rule).
