Jennifer Garner Spreads Some “Butter”

“Alias” star Jennifer Garner is attached to star and possibly produce the upcoming comedy “Butter” for Mandate Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter.

Jason Micallef’s script, which came third on the unofficial Black List of 2008, is a political satire set in the small-town world of competitive butter-sculpting.

“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 annualbutter-sculpting contest.

Craig Gillespie and Gary Ross are among the directors circling the project. Michael De Luca and Juliana Janes will produce.
