Ben Stiller Signs On To The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty!

| Filed under: Film FlickersJim CarreyOwen WilsonWill FerrellBen StillerSteven Spielberg


Finally! This project has been floating around for YEARS!

Ben Stiller is officially in talks with 20th Century Fox to take on the title role in the long-awaited, still-in development reboot of the 1947 film The Secret Life of Walter Mitty!

A kid-friendly, PG tale about a perpetual daydreamer, the flick has attracted stars like Jim Carrey, Owen Wilson, and Will Ferrell and directors like Steven Spielberg and Ron Howard, but ultimately never came to fruition due to issues with the screenplay. However, writer Steve Conrad apparently hit the nail on the head with a fresh take on the material, which immediately attracted Stiller's attention and motivated him to sign onto the project!

Excellent! Hopefully all of this hard work and effort to make it perfect will pay off, and we'll get an awesome new movie on our hands!

What do U think?? Are U excited for The Secret Life of Walter Mitty?

    I'm so sick of all these stupid reality shows and movie remakes! Hollywood doesn't deserve a penny of my money until it comes up with an original idea. Cancelled my cable and after walking out of 'Red Riding Hood' I'm going back to reading. No need to make anyone in that town richer than they already are for doing absolutely nothing.

    Stiller is perfect for the part, he is a lot more subtle than Carey and Ferrell.

    Stiller will be a great Walter Mitty!!

    I don't know the story, but I do wish that someone more original and creative would come along and give us a story that we haven't heard before. It's all remakes and shitty sequels to equally shitty movies. What the hell has happened to people's imaginations? Surely, someone in Hollywood can have an original thought once in a while. This is just sad.

    Ben Stiller = Crap

    Re: catlover – Agreed. Stiller, Wilson and Ferrell and even Ron Howard have put out some stink bombs lately that are generated just to make revenue. They have no substance. They may have made $ at the box office but stink bombs nonetheless. Do we need another Fockers movie or Night at the Museum? Or another rom-com from Wilson? Carey's the only one who has gone out on a limb. When was the last time Ferrell did something worth watching? Land of the Lost? I'll pass on this if they decide to remake a classic with this crew.

    NO! Ben Stiller is great and all…but please no! Please! Danny Kaye is my favorite comedic actor of all time and this is my favorite of his films. I just could not stand to see them put his legacy to shame with improper casting.
    Anyway, I don't even see why they would remake this film at all. The first was so great I fear any remake would be a great disappointment.

    Love the book and the original movie. Cant see Stiller in it.

    Re: catlover – If you don't know the story, this proves that it should be done again because it's a great one! The Danny Kay one was good but Ben will be a crack up in a modern version!
