Bill Murray certainly likes that Coppola clan.

The "Get Low" star, who earned an Oscar nomination for his performance in writer-director Sofia Coppola's "Lost in Translation," has signed on to appear in her older brother's new film, "A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III," according to Variety.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead ("The Thing," "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World") and Patricia Arquette (TV's "Medium") have also joined the cast, which already includes Charlie Sheen, Jason Schwartzman, Aubrey Plaza and Katheryn Winnick.

Roman Coppola's dark surrealist comedy (one that's just oozing with all sorts of meta-commentary) stars Sheen as a successful graphic designer whose fame, money and charm have made him irresistible to women. When his girlfriend breaks up with him, his life swirls into a downward spiral of doubt, confusion and reflection. Through delirious fantasies involving his many failed romances, he begins his journey down the long, hard road of self-evaluation.

Bill Murray is truly at his best when he stars in quirky dramas made by the likes of Jim Jarmusch, Wes Anderson and, yes, the Coppola siblings, so we're looking forward to seeing what kind of deadpan magic he brings to "Charles Swan III."

Murray will be seen next year in Wes Anderson's latest ensemble dramedy, "Moonrise Kingdom," and as Franklin D. Roosevelt in Roger Michell's "Hyde Park on Hudson," opposite Laura Linney and his "Rushmore" pal, Olivia Williams.

"A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III" has already commenced with production in Los Angeles.
