Kevin Dillon Is Awesomest Maximus

“Entourage” trouper Kevin Dillon has been set to play the title character in “National Lampoon’s 301: The Legend of Awesomest Maximus Wallace Leonidas” reports Variety.

The film spoofs sword-and-sandal epics “300,” “Troy,” “Gladiator” and “Braveheart,” and Dillon plays the bumbling Spartan general who fails upward in his quest for greatness.

Shooting will begin by year’s end. Jason Burinescu wrote the script, and a director will be named shortly.
