Kate Micucci and Shameless actors Steve Howey and Justin Chatwin will star in the indie Unleashed, which centers on a woman whose pets turn into full-grown men.
Finn Taylor (Dream with the Fishes) wrote and will direct the film. Susan Johnson is producing through her Braveart Films, along with Debbie Brubaker.
Micucci will star as Emma, a thirty-something app designer who moves to San Francisco after she’s betrayed by her boyfriend. One night, her pets — Ajax, a golden-eyed cat, and Summit, an energetic mutt — are transformed into two handsome, full-grown men (Howey and Chatwin) who begin to woo her.
Principal photography will kick off in San Francisco on July 1.
