Wilson & Aniston 

From E! News, Owen Wilson has confirmed that he will be back into production after his August 2007 hospitalization.  His new feature film is entitled “Marley & Me,” where Wilson and co-star Jennifer Aniston are a couple that adopts a neurotic and naughty dog that often misbehaves.  The story is based upon the bestselling memoir by John Grogan.  “Marley & Me” will now begin production March 10th. The shoot, which will take place in Miami, is expected to last through mid-May.  Hopeful release date will be Christmas 2008. 

If I were Owen Wilson’s publicist, I would be very pleased with this type of article being written.  Because of the seriousness of his suicidal attempts last fall, it is very encouraging to have light, less dramatic articles.  Since the incident happened last August, it is appropriate to be putting Wilson back into the news more than six months later.  I feel that it has been a good amount of time and reporters are again willing to approach Wilson.  I would encourage journalists, if they must touch on the subject, to do it briefly and make it not the subject of a piece.  I feel that there are a lot of privacy concerns that should not be touched upon in a malicious manner.  Even in a world where Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan, and Paris Hilton all have rehab problems and are constantly under the ever watchful eye of the paparazzi, I feel the media has shown great respect towards Wilson.  I would encourage more reporters to reach out to Wilson about his future film projects.
