Filming for the indie movie ‘Unleashed,’ set for release in 2016, brought celebrity actors to Point Richmond on Friday.

Scenes of the romantic comedy were being shot outside Point Richmond Market at 160 Washington Ave., a clerk told us. An employee at Mechanics Bank reported seeing a number of famous actors in the historic neighborhood. Lili Trujillo took this photo from the set this morning:

She is acting in the role of Emma, an app designer who moves to San Francisco after being “betrayed by her boyfriend,” according to The Hollywood Reporter. One day her dog and cat cosmically transform into two perfect men played by Steve Howey and Justin Chatwin (of the Showtime series ‘Shameless’)They, of course, begin to woo Micucci, who “reconsiders her outlook on dating, hilariously works out her trust issues, and ultimately learns to love herself,” according to the film’s IMDb profile.

Sean Astin (The Goonies, Rudy) and Josh Brener (Silicon Valley) are also in the film.
