The first images from the set of Roman Coppola’s new film have arrived online, courtesy of the film’s star Charlie Sheen, who’s been Tweeting as they shoot. In A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III, Sheen plays the title character, a graphic designer whose awesome life begins to spiral out of control after he breaks up with his girlfriend.
Considering Coppola — who also wrote the script — has worked on Wes Anderson’s last two films, it’s not hard to spot some eccentric similarities, specifically when it comes to Jason Schwartzman’s quirky, bearded-afro look. In the comedy (which Sheen tweeted is “at least TWO AND A HALF times more fun than my last gig!”) Sheen, Bill Murray and Schwartzman will be joined by Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Aubrey Plaza, Patricia Arquette and more. No release date scheduled yet, but look for it to hit theaters at some point in 2012.
