Dafoe, Dillon set to gain ‘Control’

Millennium pic penned by Slavkin, Swimmer

Willem Dafoe and Matt Dillon will star in “Control,” with Tim Hunter to direct.

Set for an Aug. 10 start in Bulgaria, “Control” is the story of a sociopath (Dillon) taken into an experimental medical program. The doctor in charge (Dafoe) must take drastic measures when his patient’s violent past comes back to haunt them both.

Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer wrote the pic. Randall Emmett and George Furla will produce it under their 15-picture production/finance arrangement with Avi Lerner’s Millennium Films.

Dafoe, who’s repped by the William Morris Agency and managed by Artists Independent Network, also stars in Roger Spottiswoode’s upcoming production “White on White” and will take a cameo role in Martin Scorsese’s “Aviator.”

He recently completed a European tour with his theater company the Wooster Group, performing “To You, the Birdie!” in Warsaw, Amsterdam and Berlin.
