"Mayor Cupcake" coming to Delaware

August 23, 2009 1:08:09 PM PDT
Independent filmmaker Alex Pires says he'll start shooting a movie called "Mayor Cupcake" in downstate Delaware in a few weeks. The family comedy stars Lea Thompson and Judd Nelson and will take place in Bridgeville, as well as Rehoboth and Dewey beaches.

Thompson, best known for the "Back to the Future" films and the sitcom "Caroline in the City," plays a stay-at-home mom who becomes mayor of Bridgeville and tries to maintain her status as the town's leading cupcake maker.

Pires will direct the film. He co-wrote it with Art D'Allesandro, a screenwriter, director and producer.

Feature filmmaking is rare in Delaware, in part because the state doesn't offer any financial incentives to moviemakers.
