Naomi Watts and Matt Dillon have signed up to star in the upcoming indie drama Sunlight Jr., from Sherrybaby writer/director Laurie Collyer.
Watts will play a hard-working convenience-store clerk, while Dillon will star as her paraplegic boyfriend. For the first time in a long time, things are looking up for the couple, as Watts' Melissa is pregnant -- but the excitement turns to despair when she loses her job and apartment.
Watts was recently seen in the thriller Dream House and will appear prominently in next week's J. Edgar. Dillon, meanwhile, hasn't been heard from since last year's Takers but has several high-profile projects due for release in 2012.
