Dillon has New Tricks for 'Old Dogs'

Matt Dillon is in final negotiations to co-star in the Walt Disney Pictures comedy "Old Dogs."

Robin Williams, John Travolta and Kelly Preston already have boarded the film, which will be directed by "Wild Hogs" helmer Walt Becker.

Penned by David Diamond and David Weissman, the story revolves around 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.

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.

Andrew Panay, Peter Abrams and Robert Levy ("Wedding Crashers") are producing through their Tapestry Films banner.

Dillon next stars in Francis Ford Coppola's "Tetro."

He is repped by CAA and manager Vic Ramos.
