Francis Ford Coppola Headed To Comic-Con

Francis Ford Coppola, who last participated in Comic-Con to tout his 1992 film Bram Stoker’s Dracula, is returning to the annual convention next month to discuss another horror project — his new film Twixt. The director will present portions of the experimental film he calls  “one part Gothic romance, one part personal film, and one part the kind of horror film that began my career” on Saturday, July 23 in Hall H. (Of course, that career-beginning film was Dementia 13.) The film, which stars Val Kilmer, Elle Fanning and Ben Chaplin, incorporates live music by performance artist Dan Deacon, who will attend the panel to help demonstrate the viewing experience.
