Pathe takes Coppola’s ‘Twixt’

No One Lives' joins sales slate

PARIS — French mini-major Pathe has snapped up Francis Ford Coppola’s thriller “Twixt” for international sales and distribution in France.

Pic, which will bow at Toronto in the Special Presentation section, toplines Val Kilmer as a mystery writer on the decline, who moves to a small town, and gets caught up in a dark murder case involving a young girl, who has turned into a ghost.

Kilmer plays opposite Elle Fanning, Bruce Dern and Ben Chaplin.

Coppola will travel to Toronto, where he will participate in a Conversation session.

Other English-language films on the slate of Pathe Intl., the sales arm of the company, include Ryuhei Kitamura’s high-concept thriller “No One Lives,” starring Luke Evans (“The Three Musketeers”).

Pic is in post-production.

Pathe Intl. will be present at Toronto with two more Special Presentation players: Anne Fontaine’s comedy “My Worst Nightmare,” toplining Isabelle Huppert, and Nadine Labaki’s Lebabon-set dramedy “Where Do We Go Now?.” Neither film has been sold to the U.S. as yet.

Fontaine, Huppert and Labaki are expected to attend the Toronto premieres.
