Movie legend Francis Ford Coppola will preview his upcoming film 'Twixt' at Comic-Con, his PR agency announced today.

The unconventional film stars Val Kilmer, Bruce Dern, Elle Fanning of 'Super 8', and Ben Chaplin. Coppola describes 'Twixt' as "one part Gothic romance, one part personal film, and one part the kind of horror film that began my career."

The story for 'Twixt' came to Coppola during a vivid dream he had while on a trip to Istanbul and is inspired by the writings of Edgar Allen Poe and Nathaniel Hawthorne. It was formerly titled 'Twixt Now and Sunrise.'

Portions of the film will be presented at Comic-Con at a panel discussion on Saturday, July 23 in a unique, interactive approach that includes live music and performance artist Dan Deacon, which is also how Coppola intends fans to experience the film when it opens.

The movie will have 2D and 3D elements, an interesting development since about a year ago, Coppola called 3D "tiresome," mostly because of the need for 3D glasses.
