Actors Sean Penn and Robin Wright Penn’s legal separation case has been called off.

People reports that the Oscar-winning actor filed a request on Tuesday to dismiss the case which has led to speculation that the pair are reconciling again.

The couple originally began divorce proceedings back in December 2007 after 11 years of marriage but called it off in April 2008.

48-year-old Penn filed papers to begin proceedings again at the end of last month but has now called it off.

The couple have two children – 18-year-old daughter Dylan and 15-year-old son Hopper.

43-year-old Wright Penn is currently at the Cannes Film Festival where she is a jury member.
