Macaulay Culkin and Eliza Dushku have signed on for leads in the dark comedy "Sex and Breakfast."
Alexis Dziena ("Invasion") and Kuno Becker ("Goal!") co-star in the film, now shooting.
Written and directed by Miles Brandman, the project apparently focuses on a couple who go to a relationship therapist with intimacy problems. The recommendation? Group sex.
"I read a lot of material and loved this script," Culkin tells Variety. "It's really about the pressure that leads them to experiment, the anticipation leading up to the event and then the fallout."
Although he's been known to do voices for "Robot Chicken," Culkin has mostly been absent from both the big and small screen since "Saved!" and "Party Monster." It was nearly 15 years ago that he was the richest child star in the land, with lead roles in films like "The Nutcracker," "Getting Even with Dad" and "The Pagemaster."
Best known for her performance as rogue slayer Faith in "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Angel," Dushku most recently starred in the FOX series "Tru Calling." Other credits for the 25-year-old actress include "Bring It On" and "Wrong Turn."Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
