Tag: Roman Coppola (1-3 of 3)

Roman Coppola, Jason Schwartzman, Lake Bell, more show short film series in LA

It was a Coppola family affair at the Los Angeles premiere of Four Stories, a short film series sponsored by and featuring W Hotels and Intel Ultrabooks. Roman Coppola curated. Jason Schwartzman and Robert Schwartzman starred in two of the films. And Talia Shire turned out to support her sons and nephew.

Die Again, Undead One is Roman Coppola’s bonus contribution to the slate. It’s part Coppola just having fun with the idea of Hollywood, B-movies, and his cousin (Schwartzman), and part plug for A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swann III (in theaters February 8).

But the main event was to show the four films that were selected from over 1,000 screenplays by a panel of indie film cool kids like Chloë Sevigny and Michael Pitt, and quickly turned into sleek shorts set in W Hotels around the world on budgets of around $75K each.

After the jump, take a look at the Four Stories, directed by Lake Bell (In a World…), Lee Toland Krieger (Celeste and Jesse Forever), Spencer Susser (Hesher), and Kahlil Joseph (Until the Quiet Comes).


Charlie Sheen, Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman attempt to get 'A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III' -- TRAILER

Although writer-director Roman Coppola (CQ, screenwriter on Moonrise KingdomThe Darjeeling Limited) recently told EW that he’s wary of drawing overt connections between the title hero in his film A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III and the well-documented lifestyle of his film’s star, Charlie Sheen, it’s difficult not to draw them watching the film’s first trailer. Over the course of 11 short seconds, Sheen’s character is called “a big fake liar,” “incredibly irresponsible,” and “crazy [and] selfish.” His playboy past gets in the way of his relationship with the girl of his dreams. And he’s plagued by fanciful fantasies involving scantily clad women, some of whom belong to an organization called the Secret Society of Ball Busters.

On the other hand, the word “winning” is never uttered, there aren’t any tigers to been seen, and Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzman are around to make Swan’s personal crisis look much, much cooler.

FIRST LOOK: Charlie Sheen and Bill Murray in 'A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III'

Brace yourself for A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III.

The movie, written and directed by Roman Coppola, stars Charlie Sheen as a brokenhearted playboy and Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzman as his best friends, who try to pull him out of a surreal spiral after the love of his life dumps him hard.

A24, a brand new New York-based indie distributor, has acquired the U.S. rights to the movie and is announcing plans today to debut it in February 2013.

Check out some first photos from the film after the jump, along with an exclusive EW interview with Coppola, who explains the strange, soulful journey of this star-crossed character, who asks: Is it possible to love and hate someone at the same time?
