Matt Dillon joins cast of Angela Robinson's Love Bug remake

Matt Dillon has signed on to play the heavy in the Walt Disney Co.'s Herbie: Fully Loaded opposite Lindsay Lohan and Michael Keaton. Additionally, sources said Breckin Meyer is in negotiations to join the cast of the revamped Disney franchise. In Herbie: Fully Loaded--which will set the mysteriously strong-willed Volkswagen Beetle, Herbie, in the world of NASCAR--Dillon takes the role of Trip, the bad boy of the racing circuit. Meyer would play Lohan's brother; Keaton is playing the pair's dad. Out D.E.B.S. writer-director Angela Robinson is behind Herbie's wheel as director, and Robert Simonds and Tracey Trench are producing. Set to start shooting this month, the film is from a script by Tom Lennon (Reno 911!'s gay Lt. Dangle) and Robert Ben Garant. Disney's original 1968 comedy feature The Love Bug spawned a feature franchise, a CBS series, and a 1997 movie-of-the-week with Bruce Campbell in the lead.
