Watch: Jason Schwartzman Reteams With Roman Coppola For Short Film 'Die Again, Undead One'

Jason Schwartzman and Roman Coppola are family (they're cousins), so they are never more than a phone call away. But even if they weren't related, we imagine they would have found each other anyway. The duo have forged a relationship that has seen them work together in many capacities -- co-writers, actor/director and more -- and they're clearly on the save wavelength. So, when Coppola made his debut feature, "CQ," it's not a shock that he called Schwartzman for a role. When over a decade later he made his sophomore effort, "A Glimpse Inside The Mind Of Charles Swan III," he called Schwartzman again. And now, for the short film "Die Again, Undead One," the pair are once again back together.

Die Again Undead One

Jason Schwartzman and Roman Coppola are family (they're cousins), so they are never more than a phone call away. But even if they weren't related, we imagine they would have found each other anyway. The duo have forged a relationship that has seen them work together in many capacities -- co-writers, actor/director and more -- and they're clearly on the save wavelength. So, when Coppola made his debut feature, "CQ," it's not a shock that he called Schwartzman for a role. When over a decade later he made his sophomore effort, "A Glimpse Inside The Mind Of Charles Swan III," he called Schwartzman again. And now, for the short film "Die Again, Undead One," the pair are once again back together.

The project is part of the Ultrabook Experience campaign co-sponsored by Intel and W Hotels, which saw aspiring filmmakers submit their short scripts, with the winning entries being produced by Coppola's company The Directors Bureau. Spencer Susser, Lake Bell, Lee Toland Krieger and Kahlill Joseph brought the winning entries to life, while Coppola capped things off his own new short. And as usual, it's another meta filmmaking affair with the production of a sci-fi horror film delightfully shooting off into a variety of narrative tangents.

You can check out Coppola's short along with the rest below.
