The first shot from Francis Ford Coppola’s next film Twixt has been unveiled online.

No, it’s not about a chocolate bar. It's a Gothic horror starring Val Kilmer and Elle Fanning (who’s pictured above with her director).

The story follows Kilmer’s hack horror writer, who suffers ghostly visions in a small town that lead him to investigate the death of a young girl (Fanning).

Coppola himself has divulged that the film draws on Nathaniel Hawthorne and Edgar Allan Poe for inspiration.

The director will be heading to Comic-Con this week to chat about the film, where hopefully we’ll get our first glimpse of Twixt ’s trailer.

Twixt has yet to receive an official UK release date.
