Thesps reach ‘Settlement’

Dark comedy co-stars Rasche and Castellaneta

Kelly McGillis, John C. Reilly and William Fichtner are set to star in the dark indie comedy “The Settlement.” David Rasche and Dan Castellaneta will co-star.

Pic is the directorial debut of scribe Mark Steilen, whose screenwriting credits include “Harvest” for Kevin Costner’s TIG Prods. and “Pooch and the Pauper” for Disney.

The film focuses on the controversial issue of viatical settlements: the practice of giving terminally ill patients cash in exchange for being named the beneficiary of their life insurance policies.

The pic is produced by Todd Hoffman’s Dogsmile Pictures and Jon Kuyper.

McGillis, who just wrapped MGM’s “At First Sight” with Val Kilmer, was repped in the deal by the Gersh Agency’s Chuck James.

Reilly (“Boogie Nights,” “The Thin Red Line”) was repped by UTA, manager Peg Donegan and attorney Steve Warren.

Fichtner, whose credits include “Contact” and “Armegeddon,” was represented by Abrams Artists’ Joe Rice and manager John Carrabino.
