New Image Of 'A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III'; Dermot Mulroney & Stephen Dorff Will Cameo

The Playlist By Edward Davis | The Playlist November 7, 2012 at 3:24PM

Renaissance man Roman Coppola hasn't directed a feature-length movie since the highly underrated "CQ" in 2001, so it's with eager anticipation we look forward to his latest, "A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III." The director may not have helmed a feature in eleven years, but he's been busy, producing his sister Sofia Coppola's "Somewhere," co-writing Wes Anderson's "Moonrise Kingdom" and "The Darjeeling Limited," and shooting second-unit photography for both these filmmakers and his father Francis Ford Coppola (not to mention shooting tons of great music videos in the interim too).

A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III, Charlie Sheen

Renaissance man Roman Coppola hasn't directed a feature-length movie since the highly underrated "CQ" in 2001, so it's with eager anticipation we look forward to his latest, "A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III." The director may not have helmed a feature in eleven years, but he's been busy, producing his sister Sofia Coppola's "Somewhere," co-writing Wes Anderson's "Moonrise Kingdom" and "The Darjeeling Limited," and shooting second-unit photography for both these filmmakers and his father Francis Ford Coppola (not to mention shooting tons of great music videos in the interim too).

His latest, 'Charles Swan III,' features an excellent cast that includes  Charlie Sheen, Jason Schwartzman, Bill Murray, Katheryn Winnick, Patricia Arquette, Aubrey Plaza, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead. The film is making its world premiere at the upcoming Rome Film Festival and a new image from the picture has been unveiled, which you can see above. The official synopsis is below:

Charles Swan III (Charlie Sheen) has it all. He’s an eccentric and highly successful graphic designer whose fame, money and devilish charm have provided him with a seemingly perfect life. But when his true love, a perplexing beauty named Ivana, suddenly ends their relationship, Charles is left heartbroken. With the support of his loyal intimates— Kirby (Jason Schwartzman), Saul (Bill Murray), and his sister, Izzy (Patricia Arquette) – he begins a delirious journey of self-reflection to try and come to terms with a life without Ivana. "A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III" is a unique relationship film told in a playful and unconventional style.

Also released is the film's running time, which is 86 minutes, fyi, and a director's statement that reveals that Dermot Mulroney and Stephen Dorff make cameos in the film (as does model Angela Lindvall, the co-star of "CQ"). Because it's so long, we'll put the director's statement on page two, but from the sounds of it, "playful" and "eccentric" seem to be the two key words to describe 'Charles Swan III.' Plush's Liam Hayes' has written the score. Hopefully, we'll learn more from Rome soon. Stateside, "A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III" is set for a February 2013 release via A24 films.
