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").
