If you tuned into last year’s Oscars, in which The King’s Speech cleaned up, there was one winner who stood out from the rest. The frizzy-haired, energetic NYU student Luke Matheny took the stage after grabbing the Academy Award for his best live-action short, God of Love. He’s now making his way into feature narrative territory with the comedy Lovesick.
Variety reports that Friends star Matt LeBlanc will be returning to the big screen, his last feature being Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle. King of the Hill‘s Dean Young wrote the script that follows “Charlie Darby (LeBlanc), who has everything a man could want except for love, because every time he gets close, he goes clinically insane. When he meets the perfect girl, he must overcome his psychosis to claim his chance at true love.”
I haven’t seen a single episode of LeBlanc’s most recent series, Episodes, but it’s nice to see he’s making his return to features with something independent. The synopsis hints at a safe step up for Matheny and one can check out the trailer for his Oscar-winning short below, while full thing can be viewed on the 127 Hours Blu-ray.
Lovesick will begin shooting this July in Los Angeles.
