Roman Coppola doesn’t get behind the camera often (it’s been 11 years since his film CQ screened at Cannes), but the filmmaker is teaming up with Jason Schwartzman, Bill Murray and Charlie Sheen for the feature called A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III, slated to debut next February.
In the meantime, Coppola and cousin Schwartzman have reunited to make the hilarious short Die Again, Undead One. The film, which is part of Intel and W Hotels’ Ultrabook Experience campaign, sounds like a horror movie – but it quickly spirals off into comedy with Coppola presenting what appears to be his own take on Dos Equis’ “most interesting man in the world.”
The Ultrabook Experience was a contest wherein screenwriters could submit short scripts entries with the winners having their projects filmed by members of Coppola’s company the Directors Bureau. Die Again, Undead One was not a contest entry, but instead a personal creation.
You can check it out below. We think you’ll enjoy the meta tone of the whole thing (we particularly liked the way Coppola and Schwartzman work in a promo for Charles Swan III), and if that piques your curiosity about the actual winners of the contest, you can find them all for your viewing pleasure here.
