He’s had a career most directors would kill for and has been nominated and/or won pretty much every award and accolade show business has to offer. So, after all that, what does he do? Go to Comic-Con in San Diego, that’s what.
That’s right, the man who brought us such films as The Godfather, Apocalypse Now, The Conversation and Dracula is heading to Comic-Con in a few weeks to promote his latest horror project Twixt. The director, who hasn’t been to the Con since 1992, 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.
The film, which stars Val Kilmer, Elle Fanning and Ben Chaplin, reportedly incorporates live music by performance artist Dan Deacon, who will be at the panel. Other than that, details on the film are still scarce. I’m sure that will change soon . . . probably sometime around July 23rd.
This just might be the one thing that gets me to go to Hall H. It sure as hell won’t be Twilight.
