LOS ANGELES, Aug. 3 (UPI) -- Macaulay Culkin is set to star in "Sex and Breakfast," a dark comedy that was written by and is being directed by Miles Brandman.

Alexis Dziena, Kuno Becker and Eliza Dushku are also starring in the story, about a couple with problems in the bedroom who seek solace from a therapist. The shrink prescribes group sex as a cure-all, Daily Variety reported Thursday.

"I read a lot of material and loved this script," Culkin told Daily Variety. "It's really about the pressure that leads them to experiment, the anticipation leading up to the event and then the fallout."
