Toronto International Film Festival
It’s hard to believe that the Toronto International Film Festival is already on our radar (where has this year gone?), but alas, it is so. Good thing, too, because as a result we’ve got the first spooky images from Francis Ford Coppola’s Twixt (formerly Twixt Now and Sunrise).
The film will be making its premiere at TIFF 2011, which runs from September 8th to the 18th. Look for an exact date soon.
Inspired by the Gothic horror of Edgar Allan Poe, Coppola’s latest “tells the tale of a burnt-out mystery writer (Val Kilmer) who gets mixed up in murder and evil in a California town.” Bruce Dern, Elle Fanning, David Paymer and Ben Chaplin also star.
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.
