Charlie Sheen set to return to the big screen in 'A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charlie Swan III'

It’s been seven long years since his last major film role — hey, the man has clearly been busy — but, with his Two and a Half Men days behind him, Charlie Sheen is apparently ready to get the tiger blood pumping again in his movie career. EW has confirmed that, as first reported by Variety, Sheen will star alongside Jason Schwartzman in writer-director Roman Coppola’s indie A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charlie Swan III.

In a role that may give some glimpse into Sheen’s own mind (not that he’s exactly hiding anything), the actor will play a successful graphic designer and charming ladies’ man whose life starts to spiral out of control after his girlfriend breaks up with him. It’s been all too easy to forget amid all the roast-ready, Vatican-assassin-warlock craziness, but back in the days of Platoon and Wall Street, Sheen was one of Hollywood’s most highly respected young actors. We’ll see whether Charlie Swan can put him back in moviegoers’ good graces. But if it did, it would make for quite a winning turnaround, wouldn’t it?

    I wonder when was the last time Charlie Sheen played a role that was anything but the womanizing bad boy? I wish him well, but is it really acting if he’s doing a version of his real life self on screen? It would be interesting to see him portraying a pensive middle-aged man pondering if this life he’s living is all there is.

    I hope he does well in the movie.

    Interesting. This is an indepedent production, which means it will need to be screened at a film festival (such as here in Utah, the sundance festival). Then it will need to find a company willing to distribute it nationwide. A lot of indepedent films never find a national audience and as such end up going straight to DVD, where they are soon forgotten.

      Hello it is a Roman Coppola project (he worked with Wes Anderson darling indie director): it will go to festivals !

  • Doubt it

    IMO Charlie’s over.

  • Juliet

    IMO Charlie is not over at all !
    Great project, Roman Coppola is talented (his participation with awesome Wes Anderson movies, his beautiful first movie CQ, his participation in his sister movies..yep he has talents) and Charlie when he wants is super talented and i am looking forward to watch it !!
    Moreover it was time Sheen comes back making movies with good directors (i hope to see him in a Coen Brothers movie in the futur..) and i also to see him in roles more different than his real life public persona..but before i want to see what Roman can do with it ! And i am curious to see how he works with talented Jason Schwartzman on-screen..
    Yes yes yes !!!
