Dillon Checks Into A Hotel

Kevin Dillon (“Poseidon,” TV’s “Entourage”) is set to star in DreamWorks’ live-action film “Hotel for Dogs” says The Hollywood Reporter.

Based on Lois Duncan’s 1971 children’s book, the story revolves around two orphaned teenagers who secretly house nine stray canines in an abandoned hotel.

Emma Roberts, Don Cheadle, Lisa Kudrow and Johnny Simmons also star. Dillon will play Kudrow’s husband and Roberts’ foster parent.

Thor Freudenthal is directing from a Jeff Lowell screenplay. Shooting on the project began the other week.
