Mark Steilen has closed a deal to helm the comedy “Real Men” for Sony-based Phoenix Pictures.

Steilen and writing partner Bennett Yellin penned the script. Paul Schiff is attached to produce, and Peter and Bobby Farrelly will exec produce. Phoenix Pictures’ Eric Paquette will oversee project for the company.

In “Real Men,” an ordinary guy must ask an extraordinary, maverick, future father-in-law for his daughter’s hand in marriage.

Steilen last helmed “The Settlement,” starring John C. Reilly and Bill Fichtner. Prior to that, he and Yellin sold the pitch “Assassination Bureau” to Paramount and the script “Basketcase,” with Dennis Leary attached to star and produce, to Warner Bros.

Steilen is repped by Broder, Kurland, Webb and Uffner.
