Peter Bogdanovich is attached to direct Polimedia Films’ indie pic “John Ledger,” which stars Tom Sizemore as the title character.

Written by Joey Camen, story follows one man’s descent into sex addiction and how it affects his family and friends.

Sizemore (“Saving Private Ryan”) will play a car salesman in southern California who battles his addiction while trying to maintain a normal life with his wife and their teenage son.

Charles Lago, Gabrielle Lui and Chris Johnson will produce, while Camen will co-produce. Sizemore is set to exec produce.

Bogdanovich and Camen are currently working on refining the script for the project, which is not fully financed yet.
