A number of images have surfaced from the set of director Roman Coppola’s A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charlie Swan III. The film centers on a successful graphic designer (Charlie Sheen) whose fame and fortune have made him irresistible to women. After his girlfriend breaks up with him, he heads into a downward spiral that forces him to look back on his failed romantic history. The set photos (posted by Sheen himself) give us a look at the former Two and a Half Men star alongside co-stars Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzman (sporting a peculiar hairdo and beard), as well as some sort of explosion.
Hit the jump to check out the images. The film also stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Aubrey Plaza, Patricia Arquette, and Katheryn Winnick.
Director Roman Coppola is firming up the cast for his next directorial project, and he’s putting together quite the ensemble. Variety reports that Bill Murray, Patricia Arquette, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead have joined A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charlie Swan III. The film stars Charlie Sheen as a successful graphic designer whose fame and fortune have made him irresistible to women. After his girlfriend breaks up with him, he heads into a downward spiral that forces him to look back on his failed romantic history. Coppola wrote the film himself and will also be producing and directing.
Murray has some history with Coppola, as he was nominated for an Academy Award for his performance in Roman’s sister Sofia’s Lost in Translation. While the Sheen casting had me a bit nervous about the project, subsequent additions to the cast piqued my interest, and this latest trio is a welcomed addition. Jason Schwartzman, Aubrey Plaza, and Katheryn Winnick also star. Production is currently underway in Los Angeles.
We’ve got a couple of casting stories for you this afternoon. First up, Lily Collins has joined the cast of the indie comedy The English Teacher. The actress joins Julianne Moore, Nathan Lane, Greg Kinnear, and Michael Angarano in Craig Zisk’s feature directorial debut. The pic centers on a high school English teacher (Moore) whose life takes a turn when one of her favorite former students (Angarano) returns to his hometown as a failed playwright. The teacher convinces her former pupil to stage the uproduced play at her school, and all does not go according to plan. Collins will play “a popular high schooler who comes into conflict with the teacher.” The actress is currently filming the starring role in Tarsem Singh’s Untitled Snow White Project.
