The photo gives a look at , who wears full makeup and all-white Gothic costume to portray ghost V. She is seen listening carefully to the Oscar-winning filmmaker who gives a direction to her on the set.

"Twixt" tells the story of Hall Baltimore (), a writer with a declining career, who arrives in a small town as part of his book tour. There, he gets caught up in a murder mystery that involves a young girl. One night during his sleep, he is approached by a mysterious young ghost named V who leads him to the truth behind the murder story.

Back in November 2010, in an interview with New York Times, Coppola said that the idea of the movie actually "grew out of dream I had last year, more of a nightmare." He continued, "But I was having it I realized perhaps it was a gift, as I could make it as a story, perhaps a scary film, I thought even as I was dreaming." He also described the story as an imagery of the eerie writings of Nathaniel Hawthorne and Edgar Allan Poe.

Joining Fanning and Kilmer in the casting department are Joanne Whalley, , Ben Chaplin, Don Novello, David Paymer, and Lisa Biales. Beside directing the movie, Coppola also serves as producer and screenwriter. Scheduled to be released sometime in 2012, the film will also be presented in Hall H at San Diego Comic Con 2011 on Saturday, July 23.
