Roman Coppola‘s last film — and his first film — was CQ, released in 2001. While he has been a creator on several big movies since thanks to work with his father (Tetro, Youth Without Youth) and Wes Anderson (The Darjeeling Limited, Moonrise Kingdom) I’ve been hoping to see more development from him as a director.

Coppola’s second feature is A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III, featuring Charlie Sheen as the title character and supporting work from Bill Murray, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Patricia Arquette, Aubrey Plaza, and Jason Schwartzman. Like CQ, the movie takes place within a skewed world that isn’t quite our reality (as the title implies) and shows what happens when Swan’s girlfriend (Katheryn Winnick) dumps him and he starts to unravel.

The film has just been dated for February 2013, and we’ve got the first two photos from the film, along with some explanation from Coppola of just what we can expect to find in Swan’s head. Read More »
