Charlie Sheen and Bill Murray party hard in these first pics from Roman Coppola's A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III

For Roman Coppola's upcoming film A GLIMPSE INSIDE THE MIND OF CHARLES SWAN III, Charlie Sheen will be playing a boozing womanizer who gets him comeuppance. No, it is not based on Sheen's life.

The film was just recently picked up for distribution and Entertainment Weekly has the first images from the film along with some tidbits from Coppola.

In the movie, 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. Wait, Sheen and Murray starring in a movie together? Either this is 1988 or just another brilliant casting decision. I love the idea of these two actors playing off of each other. When you add Jason Schwartzmann as well as the gorgeous Mary Elizabeth Winstead, you have my attention.

Coppola also says the story will be very stylized and go to unique places. Per Coppola "it’s not strictly realistic. In the film, because some of the sequences take place in the imagination of the main character, it goes to fantastical circumstances and settings. There’s a western sequence, there’s an underground spy-agency sequence. There are some playful touches that, for me, are cued off this main character, whose professional life is creating imagery, stylized imagery like album cover art."

All signs point to this being an interesting indie. Keep your eyes open for the trailer. A GLIMPSE INSIDE THE MIND OF CHARLES SWAN III looks to be released in February 2013.

Extra Tidbit: That cowboy has stars of David on his shirt. I can only imagine what the hell is going on in that scene.
