For his next film, Francis Ford Coppola continues his independent streak, financing “Twixt Now and Sunrise” himself and shooting at least part of it on his property in Napa. It’s a horror picture starring Val Kilmer, Bruce Dern, and Ben Chaplin as “Edgar Allan Poe.” Coppola last tried his hand at horror in 1992 with “Dracula,” which was both great and terrible. I still blame it for my absinthe addiction.
Coppola sometimes makes strange choices, to put it mildly, especially in casting. Another potentially strange choice is his pick of Baltimore electronic musician, Dan Deacon to score “Twixt Now and Sunrise,” currently in post production. Pitchfork hears that “Deacon and Coppola are also ‘collaborating on a larger level, details of which will be announced soon.'” Interesting, what’s larger than a film?
Deacon will not be scoring alone, also composing is Osvaldo Golijov, who scored Coppola’s “Youth Without Youth” and the more recent, “Tetro.”
