Matt Dillon to Take Care of the "Old Dogs"

Matt Dillon
"Crash" star Matt Dillon is one step away from being recruited as the cast member of Walt Disney Pictures' "Old Dogs."

Set to find himself again working under Walt Disney Pictures after 2005's "Herbie: Fully Loaded", Matt Dillon is reportedly engaged in final talks to have a starring part in the company's comedy "Old Dogs" which "Wild Hogs" helmer Walt Becker is set to direct.

Already lined up the likes of Robin Williams, John Travolta, and Kelly Preston in the cast list, the flick centers on a divorced father of 6-year-old twins and his womanizing best friend/business partner who have their hands full when they're forced to care for the kids for two weeks.

If everything goes well, Dillon will be cast as Barry, the overzealous leader of the summer camp where the two men take the kids. An ultraconservative, he perceives that the twosome is actually gay couple who have adopted the twins and so, decides to keep a sharp eye on them at all times.

No production schedule set yet for the project, but it has been confirmed that Becker will work it on from script penned by duo David Diamond and David Weissman. Meanwhile, Andrew Panay, Peter Abrams, and Robert Levy are all onboard to produce via their Tapestry Films shingle.

Dillon, who gained fame as a teen idol during the 1980s, received an Oscar nomination last year for his role in "Crash" and most recently appeared in Universal Pictures' comedy "You, Me and Dupree" directed by Anthony and Joe Russo. He was honored last Wednesday, June 20 at the gala evening of the 2007 Taormina International Film Festival, being presented with a Taormina Arte award, in the form of a Harry Winston watch.
