Francis Ford Coppola Making "Tetro"

Famed filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola will next produce and direct a vaguely autobiographical film titled "Tetro" after wrapping up "Youth Without Youth."


Hoping to write and direct films at the pace of Woody Allen, Francis Ford Coppola is set to carry out his next directorial project after "Youth Without Youth" in "Tetro", a film that fictionalizes what he calls his "very unusual family" which has been populated by artists since his father's generation.

"I think at this age, I'm more disposed to look at my life in terms of dramatic material," Coppola remarked, speaking from his home in Napa Valley, California. "Maybe I'm less frightened or more confident about writing something that is fiction even though it has its basis in real things that I've seen and felt. Maybe it won't offend anybody, I hope."

Set in Argentina, the project will concern the rivalries born out of creative differences passed down through generations of an artistic Italian immigrant family. Filming is slated to begin late this year in Buenos Aires with Matt Dillon starring and Coppola also producing.
