Dennis Quaid has joined director Gabriele Muccino's sports comedy Playing the Field, starring alongside Gerard Butler, Uma Thurman, Jessica Biel and Noah Lomax.

In Playing the Field, Gerard Butler plays George Dryer, a former soccer player who goes back to try and patch things up with his son (Noah Lomax) and estranged wife (Jessica Biel) - who is engaged to remarry someone else - and ends up coaching the boy's soccer team. He becomes the subject of fascination and desire by every bored house wife in town, especially the gorgeous Patti (Uma Thurman) who sets out on a mission to seduce the coach. Dryer must try to survive the extreme temptations of Patti and advances of the other soccer moms, as well as revive his relationship with his son.

Dennis Quaid is playing one of the coaches on the opposing teams.

Production starts this month in Shreveport, Louisiana.
