Francis Ford Coppola (The Godfather) has put together a video in order to give the status of his upcoming “Tetro” film.
In the video, he explains that the $15 million drama has wrapped the Argentina shoot and says that he is really happy with casting the “brilliant” Vincent Gallo (Buffalo 66, The Brown Bunny). Check out the video.
“Tetro” is set in Argentina and follows the rivalries born out of creative differences passed down through generations of an artistic Italian immigrant family. Coppola said that the pieces of the story are loosely based on his own life.
I also had a chance to speak with the legendary director in ‘Spanglish’ in late 2007 about ‘Tetro’. You can check out the video here.
The film is an original script by Coppola, the first since “The Conversation” (1974). It is scheduled to hit theaters close to the end of the year.
