Dorff Stepping in Dillon's "Boot Tracks," Alongside Monaghan & Winstone



    Stephen Dorff is surely enjoying the bump his career is getting thanks to "Somewhere."

    Dorff is stepping into the lead role in "Boot Tracks," a part for which Matt Dillon was previously slated, reported Variety. Also in the film are Dorff's "Somewhere" co-star Michelle Monaghan and Ray Winstone.

    Stephen Dorff and Elle Fanning (how many kids did Ma Fanning have?) star in the latest film from writer-director Sofia Coppola, about an actor who's life gets turned upside-down when his ex dumps their kid on him.

    Based on the novel by Matthew F. Jones, the film tells the story of Charlie Rankin (Dorff), an ex-con who joins forces with an ex-porn star (Monaghan) to kill a guy as a favor for Buddha (Winstone), a guy he met in prison.

    We hated "Somewhere," but Dorff was not the problem, and the one scene he had with Monaghan was hilarious--one can't help but wonder if she recommended him to director David Jacobson ("Down in the Valley").

    Jake Gyllenhaal is a soldier sent into the body of another man to stop a terrorist bombing of a train, a mission he must attack repeatedly until he gets it right, in the new film from Duncan Jones ("Moon"). Co-stars Michelle Monaghan, Vera Farmiga and Jeffrey Wright.

    Dorff can next be seen Sept. 9 in "Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star," about a guy who follows his parents into the porn indsutry; and Nov. 11 in "Immortals."
