The plot to this film sounds like a tame-ish version to Charlie Sheen’s real life and it looks like lately, Sheen is winning in life…I’m sorry for the stupid Sheen catchphrase… Yesterday, it was announced that Sheen’s new show got picked up by FX and would begin airing in 2012 and now Variety has reported that Bill Murray has joined the cast of Roman Coppola’s “A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III” with Sheen in the title role. The cast will include Patricia Arquette, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Jason Schwartzman, Aubrey Plaza and Katheryn Winnick.
Hooray for the mini “Scott Pilgrim” reunion!
In “Charles Swan”, (not in anyway a sequel to “Black Swan”), Sheen stars as a successful graphic designer whose fame, money and charm have made him irresistible to women. When his girlfriend breaks up with him, his life swirls into a downward spiral of doubt, confusion and reflection. Through delirious fantasies involving his many failed romances, he begins the hard road of self-evaluation to come to terms with life without her.
See, sounds similar to his life. Hopefully there won’t be any “goddesses” involved…
Coppola will write and direct as well as producing the film with Youree Henley. Production is currently under way in Los Angeles.
