In a story from Variety, The Weinstein Co. is going to make Butter.

Jennifer Garner is both starring in and producing this project with Mike De Luca.

Butter follows a young orphan who, after being adopted by a Midwestern family, discovers she has an uncanny talent for butter-carving. She eventually finds herself up against the ambitious wife of the retired reigning champion in a town's annual butter-sculpting contest.

The script was written by Jason Micallef. It will be directed by Jim Fields Smith.

Butter will be the first film for Garner's production company Vandalia Films. "I can't wait to start churning," she stated.

Production will start next month in Louisiana.
