Coppola's Twixt Now And Sunrise Tidbits
The latest on his undercover thriller

Francis Ford Coppola sat down with our Ian Freer to talk about Apocalypse Now for the latest issue of Empire magazine (out on Thursday), and while he was there he dropped just a couple of tiny tidbits about his new film, Twixt Now And Sunrise, which might be of interest to his fans.

"It's part personal film, part Gothic romance, part Halloween show. If I can present it the way I want to, it is something that's never been done before," he said of the film.

Given that there have been rumours already that Coppola was planning on presenting a "brief dramatic segment" of the film in 3D, his remark about "presenting it the way I want to" sounds rather significant. Coppola is still in the editing room with the film at the moment, after writing the screenplay in two days. Apparently he was inspired by a dream he had in Istanbul that was interrupted by a morning call to prayer, leaving him struggling to get back to sleep to find its end.

For his own films, he says, "The only rule is that it is beautiful and that people are affected and moved by it." He also credits Sofia Coppola for changing the way he makes films. "My daughter has taught me how to look for what I want to express with less - with less talk and more with what I feel. I feel a lot of things, but in order to try and express them, sometimes I think I go too far."

So from these clues, what can you glean about Twixt Now And Sunrise? And are you excited about it?
