The story revolves around a shoe designer (Jim Sturgess), whose family wants to use his work to create cheap knock-offs for a big profit. In an attempt to bring him back into the fold, they hire a muse (Kristen Stewart) and a psychotherapist (Elizabeth Banks) before he cuts ties with his kin.
Steven Shainberg will direct from a screenplay he co-wrote with Mickey Birnbaum, which employs the same blend of eroticism and humor as Steven Shainberg's 2002 indie Secretary. The project will mark his first directorial outing since 2006's Fur: An Imaginary Portrait of Diane Arbus. Andrew Lazar is producing through his Mad Chance Productions company.
Shooting is scheduled to begin June 17.
