Bones star Emily Deschanel has left the silver screen to her younger sister Zooey; until now. According to Variety, the lesser-known sibling of indie darling (and half of She & Him), Zooey, will film Perfect Family this summer while Bones is on hiatus.

The film is an indie drama directed by Anne Renton. It centers on a successful gay lawyer, played by Deschanel, whose traditional Catholic family is threatened by her entrance in a competition to find the perfect family. Kathleen Turner will play Deschanel’s mother in the movie and Jason Ritter has been cast as her brother. The movie does not yet have a release date.
