Roman Coppola’s highly anticipated “A Glimpse Inside The Mind of Charles Swan III” will hit theaters in February 2013, it was announced today.
A24, a new film company focused on distribution, financing and production with headquarters in New York City, will release film, which is Coppola’s first feature film since 2001’s “CQ.” The release date suggests a possible premiere at the Sundance Film Festival a month prior.
“I am excited to work with A24, a new company with a lot of vitality who isn’t afraid of trying something new and pushing the boundaries,” Coppola said. “Those are the type of people I’m drawn to. Their collective work demonstrates that they’ll bring verve, energy and pizzazz to the release of the film. And the fact that they are named A24 after a road in Italy is appealing — that kind of playfulness and respect for those types of things is something I value.”
“Glimpse” stars Charlie Sheen, Jason Schwartzman, Bill Murray, Patricia Arquette, Aubrey Plaza, Katheryn Winnick, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead. Coppola produced the film with Youree Henley, and the film was executive produced by Michael Zakin and Robert Maron, and features a score by Liam Hayes. Digital entertainment curator FilmBuff will handle all domestic digital distribution. Bart Walker of Cinetic Media negotiated the deal for the film with A24.
The film’s synopsis, care of A24:
“The film, set in a stylized Los Angeles, is a daring, playful comedy of lost love, friendship, revenge fantasies, and Brandy Alexanders. Charles (Charlie Sheen) is a successful graphic designer whose fame, money andcharm have provided him with a seemingly perfect life. When his true love, a perplexing beauty named Ivana, suddenly breaks off their relationship, Charles’ life falls apart and he swirls into a downward spiral of doubt, confusion and reflection. With the support of his loyal intimates— Kirby (Jason Schwartzman), Saul (Bill Murray), and his sister, Izzy (Patricia Arquette) — he begins the hard road of self-evaluation to come to terms with a life without Ivana. The film begs the question: Is it possible to love and hate someone at the same time?”
