Matt Dillon cast in Freaky Deaky

Matt Dillon, Brendan Fraser and Craig Robinson have signed on for the big-screen adaptation of Freaky Deaky.

The trio will star in the crime flick, based on the Elmore Leonard novel of the same name, with Matt taking on the role of an LAPD bomb squad officer, reports Variety.

He comes across a bomb-making plot hatched by two hippies - played by Brendan and Craig - in an attempt to con an alcohol-loving movie mogul (William H Macy).

Charles Matthau will be directing the film, which is set to take place in 1974 instead of the late 80s setting as in the book.

Production is expected to start this summer in Michigan.
