Thesp pair inks for ‘Passion’

Both will play opposite Moore

Stellan Skarsgard and William Fichtner will both play leading men opposite Demi Moore in Lakeshore and Paramount Classics’ “Passion of Mind.”

The pair play the men in Moore’s separate but parallel lives in the Alain Berliner-helmed drama, which is set to start lensing later this month.

Peter Riegert is close to a deal to play Moore’s psychologist, according to sources.

The Ron Bass-scripted pic follows Moore’s character as she tries to resolve her seemingly simultaneous lives as a widowed American mother living in the South of France and a single, successful Gotham book editor.

Skarsgard plays a French novelist; Fichtner, a New York accountant.

Paramount execs could not be reached for comment.

Skarsgard’s credits include “Breaking the Waves,” “Amistad,” “Good Will Hunting” and the upcoming “Ronin.” He was repped by manager Jeri Scott and ICM.

Fichtner, whose credits include “Heat” and “Contact,” most recently piloted a spaceship in the summer blockbuster “Armageddon.” His upcoming roles include “Go!” and “The Settlement.”

His deal was brokered by Joe Rice of Abrams Artists and manager John Carrabino of Gallin-Morey.
