Kevin Pollak and Illeana Douglas have boarded the dark comedy Chez Upshaw, about a married couple who turn their flailing B&B into a "check in, don't check out" resort for assisted suicides.

Bruce Mason is writing and directing the indie pic that will also star Molly Sims, Greg Grunberg and Shane Johnson.

"Bruce wrote a hilarious, dark comedy that I'm excited as hell to inhabit, and over the moon about having Illeana as my considerably better half," said Kevin Pollak. "On one level, it's the closest in tone I've seen to the British TV classic Fawlty Towers, but with an original, fresh helping of the macabre and the surprisingly sweet love story of this forever-married couple."

Production starts later this month.
