Legendary director Francis Ford Coppola's first film in 10 years has been slated for release later this year (07). Coppola has written, directed and produced World War One epic YOUTH WITHOUT YOUTH - a decade after his last movie THE RAINMAKER in 1997. The film, which is based on a novella by Romanian author MIRCEA ELIADE, stars Tim Roth as an elderly professor targeted by the Nazi regime and is scheduled to hit cinemas in the late autumn. Speaking to trade publication the Hollywood Reporter, Coppola explains "It is a love story wrapped in a mystery. The story revolves around the key themes that I most hope to understand better: time, consciousness and the dreamlike basis of reality."
