Matt Dillon is in final negotiations to co-star in the Walt Disney Pictures comedy “Old Dogs” says The Hollywood Reporter.
Penned by David Diamond and David Weissman, the story revolves around a divorced father (Robin Williams) of 6-year-old twins and his womanizing best friend/business partner (John Travolta) who have their hands full when they’re forced to care for the kids for two weeks.
Dillon will play Barry, the overzealous leader of the summer camp where they take the kids. He is ultraconservative and thinks the two men (Williams, Travolta) are actually gay lovers who have adopted the twins. He keeps a sharp eye on the two at all times.
Kelly Preston also stars, and “Wild Hogs” helmer Walt Becker directs.
