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!
