    Matt Dillon and Columbus Short have signed on to topline the heist thriller Armored for Screen Gems.

    The story centers on an armored car guard (Dillon) who is persuaded by his veteran cohorts to empty the truck of its $10 million.

    Nimrod Antal (Vacancy) will direct from a James V. Simpson screenplay. Shooting is scheduled to begin later this year.

    Sam Raimi, Josh Donen and Dan Farah are producing, while Chris Lemos and Luis Guerrero are executive producing.

    Dillon has also landed the starring role in another Screen Gems heist film, Bone Deep, produced by Overbrook Entertainment. In Bone Deep, he will play a Manhattan detective who is pit against a young crew that specializes in elaborate heists.

    I don't trust Screen Gems. In most cases, their movies suck.

    Looks like a good ol' fashioned popcorn crime action drama with a hell of a cast.

    May check this out tomorrow just to tide me over until the real **** begins later this month. :o It's got Fishburne, Reno and Dillon, so I'll at least get some decent performances out of it.

    Getting pushed from Sep. to the holiday season means the studio actually has faith in it.
