Dan Deacon, Wham City founding member, local goofball, will score an upcoming movie by Francis Ford Coppola, noted filmmaker of "Bram Stoker's Dracula."

And some little-noticed Italian mobster movies.

Deacon, who was classically trained at SUNY Purchase, will score Coppola's "Twixt Now and Sunrise," a movie starring Val Kilmer and Elle Fanning that will be released later this year, Pitchfork Media reported.

How this meeting of minds happened is not known. I've e-mailed Deacon for a response; Pitchfork credits a press release with the announcement.

Maybe Papa Coppola started listening to "Bromst" on his time off at the vineyard. Though, in all honesty, Deacon sounds more like Val Kilmer's bag, something to rock out to at his ranch.

Interestingly, no Coppola movies are on the schedule for Deacon's Gunky's Basement revival movie series. A suggestion? Screen the deliciously cheese Dracula movie.

Update: Francis Ford Coppola and Dan Deacon explain how they met.
