Ben Stiller To Direct “Walter Mitty” Remake

Though he’s already attached to star, Ben Stiller is also now in talks to direct “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” remake at 20th Century Fox reports Variety.

Based on the 1947 Danny Kaye film which itself was based on a 1939 James Thurber short story, ‘Mitty’ follows a quintessential daydreamer whose vivid imagination allows him to escape from the mundane constraints of his ordinary life.

“The Pursuit of Happyness” scribe Steve Conrad is penning the script with Samuel Goldwyn Jr. and John Goldwyn producing.
