Writer-director Barry Primus has gained an executive producer for his latest project. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Robert De Niro will be behind the dramatic comedy 20% fiction.

The movie will revolve around an aimless acting coach that grows tired of his superficial L.A. lifestyle. He decided to move to a small town, and soon falls in love with the quirky residents that live there.

Primus once served as De Niro's acting coach, and the two have been longtime friends. This is the second Primus film that De Niro has thrown his money behind.

The film will start shooting this September in Los Angeles.
