Wilson and Nolte Feel the Thunder


Owen Wilson and Nick Nolte will star in Tropic Thunder, the Ben Stiller-directed DreamWorks comedy about a group of actors who go on location to shoot a war movie, only to find that reality replicates their plot.

Stiller, who wrote the script with Justin Theroux and Etan Cohen, is producing with Red Hour partner Stuart Cornfeld.

Wilson and Nolte join Stiller, Jack Black, Robert Downey Jr., Brandon Jackson, Steve Coogan, Danny McBride, Bill Hader, Jay Baruchel, Matt Levin and Andrea De Oliveira in the ensemble.

The film shoots this summer in Hawaii and Los Angeles.
