According to The Hollywood Reporter, Donald Petrie has signed on to helm the ensemble romantic comedy Chasing Dinner for the Yari Film Group.

Penned by the writing team of Bruce Evans and Ray Gideon (Starman, Stand by Me), Dinner is produced by Ashok Amritraj, Jon Jashni, Amy Adelson, Orly Adelson, Matthew Baer and YFG president and founder Bob Yari.

The story is set in a small town whose residents' lives are turned upside down when three pigs escape being butchered to become hams on the lam, spurring a media circus during the holiday season.
