Owen Wilson Is 'Happy' Movie With Suicidal Role To Be Released
And, in a bizarre coincidence, his latest movie character is involved in a deliberate motorcycle accident in The Darjeeling Limited.
But director Wes Anderson - a longtime friend of Wilson's - insists the actor doesn't want the movie's release postponed in light of his recent troubles. Anderson says, "That's not what I want and not what Owen wants. Owen's very happy we're releasing it now."
"The Darjeeling Limited" co-writer Roman Coppola adds, "There's the show business adage of the show must go on. We're all sympathetic about our friend's well being. I haven't spoken with him about this but I think he'd be very eager that the film be shown. He's proud of the work we did.
"In terms of art and personal life echoing one another, that's the proper way to make a movie. I've been witness to a lot of movies that my dad (Francis Ford Coppola) did and it's very familiar to me that your personal life reflects the theme of the movie.
"To me it's just a given that your life and the theme of the work is going to intertwine."
