Twenty-something-year-old drifter, Cory, arrives in Los Angeles to help his semi-famous TV star friend, Brendan, take his first steps out of "The Closet".
In November 2012, it was announced that Max Landis would direct the film in his directorial debut, for Big Beach Films, with production planned to begin in spring or summer 2013. It was also announced that Peter Saraf and Marc Turtletaub will produce the film. In July 2013, it was announced that Luke Bracey, Dustin Milligan, and Emily Meade had been cast in the film. In August 2013, it was announced that Angela Sarafyan had been cast in the film as Heather Frost. In October 2013, it was announced that Haley Joel Osment had been cast in the film, appearing as a fictionalized version of himself. Scott Bakula and Geena Davis also co-star as Brendan's parents. According to set costumer, Tasha Goldthwait, Max Landis created a hostile workplace that included sexual assault and harassment. "Landis quickly began subjecting Goldthwait to what she described as "physical, sexual, and verbal abuse." "He would talk about his penis all the time to me, brag about the size of it." She continued, "On set he would touch me all the time, he would pick me up and turn me upside down and carry me around set. My shirt would come above my face and I'd be exposed. At one point we were on set with people around and he pushed me down and got on top of me on a bed. I raised my voice and told him to get off of me, and eventually managed to get him off."
