The Cake Eaters: According to Variety, documentary maker Jessica Yu will transition to narrative features with indie production The Cake Eaters, an offbeat comic drama scripted by and starring Jayce Bartok.

The pic is scheduled to shoot in New York next month for Red Sky Pictures.

Set in small-town America over the course of two days, the contempo tale centers on two dysfunctional families thrown together by the return of one family's prodigal son, forcing the clans' members to battle old ghosts and work through emotional issues as they search for love at any cost.
