Matt Dillon Joins Morgan Freeman in ‘Going in Style’

Matt Dillon and Ann-Margret are joining Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and Alan Arkin in New Line’s reboot of the 1979 George Burns caper comedy “Going in Style.”

Zach Braff, who helmed the Kickstarter-funded comedy “Wish I Was Here,” will direct from Ted Melfi’s script. Warner Bros.-based Donald De Line is producing while Tony Bill, who produced the original film, is exec producing.

The original movie, which starred Burns, Art Carney and Lee Strasberg, followed three retirees who wore Groucho Marx glasses to execute a bank heist. Directed by Martin Brest, the film was a solid performer for Warner, grossing $30 million at the box office.

The new version of “Going in Style” will center on three retired men who lose their pensions when the company they’ve worked for their entire lives is sold to a foreign corporation. Desperate for money to survive, they set out to rob the very bank that’s withholding their money.

Dillon, who’s been starring in “Wayward Pines,” will play the FBI agent who pursues the trio. Ann-Margret will portray the love interest of Arkin’s character.

Filming recently began in New York City.

Dillon is repped by CAA and Untitled Entertainment.
