Owen Wilson Quits Tropic Thunder Following Suicide Attempt


Owen Wilson


Owen Wilson is reported to have dropped out of ensemble comedy "Tropic Thunder" which was to reunite him with his longtime collaborator Ben Stiller.

The attempted suicide Owen Wilson conducted Sunday, August 26, 2007 not only has brought shock to fans and moviegoers alike but also turns out to vanish all the excitement on chance to see him reunite with fellow funnyman Ben Stiller in "Tropic Thunder."

Currently recovering at Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Wilson reportedly has dropped his role in the ensemble comedy which has been in production since six weeks ago. The actor supposedly was slated to begin a week-long shoot in two or three weeks.

"Ben and Owen have made eight movies together," a source close to the project said. "And he can't wait to work with Owen again. It's just not going to be on this film."

Following Wilson's departure, it is unclear whether his part will be recast or simply get eliminated from the movie, which centers on a group of actors shooting a big-budget war movie who are forced to become the soldiers they are portraying. Both DreamWorks Pictures and his personal publicist declined to give any comments on the matter.
