Dennis Farina (Law & Order) has signed on to star in the independent feature drama "The Last Rites of Joe May," which was written and will be directed by Joe Maggio. The film will be set in Farina’s native Chicago. It covers the last days in the life of Joe May, an aging, short money hustler who always believed that greatness was just around the corner, and he is presented with one last shot at redeeming his wasted life. Filming just began in Chicago an is expected to be released sometime in 2010.
