Coppola to return to Comic-Con

Francis Ford Coppola is returning to Comic Con

Francis Ford Coppola will be returning to Comic-Con, 20 years on.

The Oscar-winning director will be presenting portions of his upcoming film Twixt, which stars Val Kilmer, Bruce Dern, Elle Fanning and Ben Chaplin, at a panel discussion at the convention on July 23.

"I fondly recall meeting the Comic-Con audience years ago when I brought them my Dracula film. That experience made me not want to miss this chance to return with Twixt," he said.

Coppola describes the film, which he wrote, produced and directed from a vivid dream he had during a trip to Istanbul, as "one part Gothic romance, one part personal film, and one part the kind of horror film that began my career."

Val stars as a writer whose career is going downhill and gets caught up in a murder mystery involving a young girl, after he is approached by a mysterious young ghost.

The iconic filmmaker, who is famed for The Godfather films and Apocalypse Now, last visited San Diego in 1991 when he previewed Dracula.
