Owen Wilson has pulled out of his latest movie project to recover from an alleged suicide attempt. 

Wedding Crashers star Wilson was reportedly found by his brother Andrew at his home in Santa Monica, California, on Sunday, with sources claiming he cut his wrists and took a number of pills.

He is currently recovering in Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

According to Variety magazine, Wilson has pulled out of movie comedy Tropic Thunder, which he was due to begin shooting with actor pal Ben Stiller in two weeks’ time.

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

It is not known if Wilson will be replaced or if his role will be dropped from the script.

A spokesman for DreamWorks and Wilson were unavailable for comment.
