Actor Owen Wilson will return to work next month, filming Marley & Me with co-star Jennifer Aniston in Miami, his first film since his suicide attempt at his Santa Monica home on Aug. 26.

Since that dreadful day, Wilson has focused on recovery, dropping out of Ben Stiller-film Tropic Thunder and traveling with pal Woody Harrelson to Peru and Miami Beach.

"Miami loves when Owen is in town and we are all happy to see him back at work in our city," says Hardy Hill, VIP Ambassador of The Opium Group, which owns several nightclubs in South Beach. "Owen attracted lots of attention when he was here last, and having a bit of Hollywood in South Florida is always great. We hope to see his face at some of our venues."

Marley & Me, based on a memoir, depicts the lives of a young columnist and his wife, also a reporter, who move to South Florida and adopt an incredible puppy named Marley. Production in Miami begins Mar. 10 and the film is set for a U.S. release on Dec. 19.
