For the first time since last summer's reported suicide attempt, Owen Wilson is going back to work. Wilson will join Jennifer Aniston on the set of Marley and Me, a rom-com about a couple who adopt a dog as a test run for parenthood, only to be surprised by how much of a handful one pesky pup can be.

After being hospitalized this past summer, Wilson dropped out of production for Tropic Thunder. He was replaced by Matthew McConaughey.

Marley and Me also stars Alan Arkin and is slated for a Christmas Day release. - Adam Bryant
