Are you ready to tumble down the rabbit hole that is Charlie Sheen's brain?
The tabloid superstar is poised to make something of a "Being John Malkovich"-style comeback as he looks to be playing a gonzo version of himself (sort of, or something) in Roman Coppola's surrealist comedy, "A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III."
Sheen stars in the title role, a graphic designer who, upon breaking up with his trophy girlfriend, plunges himself into a series fantastical dreamscapes featuring "Wizard of Oz"-like appearances of his friends and acquaintances in various roles. Jason Schwartzman, in particular, is nearly unrecognizable ... in pretty much every single one of his incarnations.
Bill Murray, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Aubrey Plaza, Katheryn Winnick and many more star in what definitely appears to be a true companion piece to director Coppola's psychedelic valentine to schlocky '60s sci-fi cinema, "CQ." Don't expect any lack of imagination — or an excess of narrative coherency — in this one.
Check out the trailer below, and get the full "Glimpse" when it hits theaters on Feb. 8, 2013.
