Patton Oswalt has also joined the project as an associate producer for “Unlovable,” a story about a woman’s struggle with sex and love addiction. The project topped its $50,000 fundraising goal Tuesday with four days left in the campaign.
“Unlovable” follows character named Joy, based on deGuzman’s own experiences which include entering a 12-step program in 2014.
Leo will be playing Maddie, Joy’s “fearless sponsor,” according to the site.
DeGuzman developed the story with independent film stalwart Mark Duplass, whose credits include “Jeff Who Lives at Home,” “The Skeleton Twins,” “Creep,” “The Do-Deca-Pentathlon” and HBO’s “Togetherness” .
