Owen Wilson holidaying in Tropic Thunder

Here’s a shocker folks – Owen Wilson has signed up for the new Ben Stiller comedy, Tropic Thunder. Who didn’t see that one coming?

But Ben’s BFF is not the only new addition to a cast that already includes Jack Black, Robert Downey Jr, Steve Coogan and Jay Baruchel – Nick Nolte has also signed on board.

The plot, for anyone who has already forgotten, finds a group of spoiled Hollywood actors going on location to shoot a war movie, only to find a real-life conflict breaking out around them.

Stiller is directing from a script he wrote with Justin Theroux and Ethan Cohen, ad he’s about to start shooting in Hawaii and Los Angeles.
