LAKE COUNTY, Calif. – The trailer for the movie Francis Ford Coppola filmed in Lake County last year has made its debut.
The three-and-a-half-minute trailer for “Twixt” was posted to YouTube on Tuesday, Aug. 2.
Lake County residents will recognize downtown Kelseyville and Clearlake, and “The Woodpecker” shop on Highway 20 in Nice, with its assortment of bat and bird houses and recycled wood furniture.
The gothic horror tale stars Val Kilmer, Elle Fanning, Bruce Dern and Ben Chaplin, and follows the story of a mystery writer's visit to the small town of Swann Valley and his subsequent exploration of a young girl's murder.
According to writer Russ Fischer, Coppola appeared on a panel at Comic Con last month and shared a look at his plans for the film, including presenting parts of it in 3D.
Coppola also plans to take an interactive approach to presenting the film. Fischer reported that Coppola will undertake a 30-city tour later this year in which he and his team will create different versions of the movie depending on where it's viewed and audience reaction.
The movie will have its world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival in September.
