Francis Ford Coppola has already started production on his next film, a thriller entitled Twixt Now and Sunrise, reports Deadline.
Based on a short story by Coppola, the film will star Val Kilmer as a horror author. He will be joined by Bruce Dern and Elle Fanning in unknown roles.
Little is currently known about the film’s plot, though the title is a direct reference to a 1835 short story by Nathaniel Hawthorne, “Young Goodman Brown,” set in 17th century Salem, Massachusetts. The title character, Goodman Brown is returning home to his wife, Faith, when he encounters a man in the forest who is likely the Devil.
His wife an allegorical reference to literal faith, Brown at one point explains his travels, saying, “My journey, as thou callest it, forth and back again, must needs be done ‘twixt now and sunrise.”
Twixt Now and Sunrise is now in production in Napa.
