Today the first trailer for the thriller Twixt arrived. At its Comic-Con panel director Francis Ford Coppola demonstrated how the film can be edited on the fly with plans to craft unique cuts at a number screenings planned around the country. There is currently no official release date set for Twixt (expect that to come in 2012) but it will premiere at the Toronto Film Festival in September.
A writer with a declining career arrives in a small town as part of his book tour and gets caught up in a murder mystery involving a young girl. That night in a dream, he is approached by a mysterious young ghost named V. He’s unsure of her connection to the murder in the town, but is grateful for the story being handed to him. Ultimately he is led to the truth of the story, surprised to find that the ending has more to do with his own life than he could ever have anticipated.
