While receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Gold Coast Film Festival, veteran actor Bruce Dern recently spoke to Showbiz411 about his latest work, Francis Ford Coppola's TWIXT NOW AND SUNRISE. The film recently wrapped production in Napa Valley, California.
The gothic thriller concerns Edgar Allen Poe. "Francis says it's more of him in it than any of his films," says Dern. The biggest news he dropped, however, is that part of the film will be told in rhyme. There was also a little bit about the plot revealed:
Dern is the sheriff in a spooky town with a murder mystery. [Val] Kilmer is a second tier mystery writer who comes to town and investigates its past. There's a clock steeple in the town with different time on each of its four sides.
Dern stars alongside Val Kilmer, Joanne Whalley (below), Bruce Dern, Ben Chaplin, Don Novello, David Paymer and Elle Fanning. Coppola's American Zoetrope is producing. An October release date via is expected, but nothing is official as of now.
