Sul New York Times, nuove informazioni sul film che Francis Coppola sta girando nelle vicinanze della sua tenuta a Napa Valley, Twixt Now and Sunsire.
Mr. Coppola wrote that the new project “grew out of dream I had last year – more of a nightmare.” He continued: But as I was having it I realized perhaps it was a gift, as I could make it as a story, perhaps a scary film, I thought even as I was dreaming. But then some loud noise outside woke me up, and I wanted to go back to the dream and get an ending. But I couldn’t fall back asleep so I recorded what I remembered right there and then on my phone. I realized that it was a gothic romance setting, so in fact I’d be able to do it all around my home base, rather than have to go to a distant country.
Il cast si è arricchito di nuove presenze:
The film’s cast will also feature Elle Fanning – an actress seen in a coming film by his daughter, Sofia, “Somewhere” – as a young ghost named V, and Joanne Whalley, who is Mr. Kilmer’s ex-wife, playing an unspecified role. (Mr. Coppola wrote that Ms. Whalley “was suggested by Val.”) Other actors will include Bruce Dern, Ben Chaplin, Don Novello, David Paymer and Alden Erenreich, a star of Mr. Coppola’s 2009 film, “Tetro.”
Il budget è ridotto a soli 7 milioni di dollari ed il film sarà pronto per il 2011. Non c’è ancora un distributore. Le riprese andranno avanti per 5 settimane.
