Director of Bram Stokers Dracula says 1992 film starring the pair included a real wedding ceremony
Francis Ford Coppola has backed a theory by Winona Ryder that she and Keanu Reeves might be married.
The director of the 1992 movie Bram Stoker’s Dracula, which starred Ryder and Reeves, demonstrated Ryder’s story that a wedding background involving the pair is likely to be legally binding.
After filming settled, Coppola said he was unfortunate with a stylised form of the stage and decided that” having the real wedding ceremony as it might be in that religion[ Greek Orthodox Christianity] would be beautiful “.
He then filmed a ritual in a Greek Orthodox church in Los Angeles with a real priest.” This is pretty authentic and I suppose very beautiful, because we actually did the opening ceremony and had the priest do the opening ceremony .,” Coppola said.” So in a sense, when we were all done, we realised that Keanu and Winona really are married from the consequences of this background and the opening ceremony .”
Ryder first proposed the relevant recommendations at the weekend to Entertainment Weekly, saying:” We actually got married in Dracula. No, I swear to God, I think we’re married in real life. In that background, Francis[ Ford Coppola] applied a real Romanian pastor. We filmed the captain and he did the whole thought. So I think we’re married .”
Footage of the opening ceremony is spliced in the film with the death of a sidekick, who has been turned into a ogre. Ryder and Reeves drink from a goblet and are consecrated with a wreath of lily-white roses before kissing energetically. Neither is received speaking, and it is unknown whether the priest is using the pair’s real epithets or their personas ‘.
Ryder’s recent partnerships with Reeves is a romcom called Destination Wedding. It is their fourth cinema together, after Dracula, A Scanner Darkly and The Private Lives of Pippa Lee.
