Francis Ford Coppola has wrapped on his latest feature Tetro after 63 days of principal photography in Buenos Aires and Patagonia. A spring 2009 release is anticipated.

Additional shooting of a ballet by Ana Maria Stekelman will still take place in Madrid but the main leg of the shoot is complete. 'I am pleased to report that we wrapped exactly on time, shooting every day we were scheduled and finishing on budget,' he said.

Post-production will take place in Buenos Aires and Valencia, Spain.

The film stars Vincent Gallo, Klaus Maria Brandauer, Maribel Verdu, Carmen Maura, Carlo Tetrocini, Francesca De Sapio and newcomer Alden Ehrenreich. Some of Argentina's leading actors also appear in the film including Rodrigo De La Serna, Leticia Bredice, Mike Amigorena, Erica Rivas, Jean Francois Casanova and Sofia Gala.

Mihai Malamaire Jr was director of photography, Walter Murch is editing the film, Osvaldo Golijov is composing the score and Anahid Nazarian and Fred Roos are acting as executive producers.
