Ben Stiller will make 'Walter Mitty's' secret life his next flick
"Zoolander" fans are going to have to be patient as it looks like Ben Stiller has chosen his next film and it's not a sequel to the 2001 comedy classic. Instead, Stiller is heading back to the safe confines of a PG friendly remake of "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty."
In the 1947 Danny Kaye classic, Mitty is a daydreaming writer who ends up becoming a real hero in the middle of a World War II conspiracy. According to Deadline, screenwriter Steve Conrad ("The Pursuit of Happyness") has come on board to pen an update that finally has put the project toward a green light. Over the past decade, stars such as Will Ferrell, Owen Wilson, Jim Carrey, Mike Meyers and Sacha Baron Cohen have been interested in a remake, but it appears the role is now Stiller's.
Production isn't expected to begin until late fall. In the meantime, Stiller will return to the stage in a new Broadway version of "The House of Blue Leaves" co-starring Edie Falco and Jennifer Jason Leigh. It officially opens on April 25.
