According To Starpulse:
Ben Stiller, an extremely funny actor who has starred in such classic series as the Meet The Parent’s series and A Night At The Museum series has recently set his sights on the upcoming remake of The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty.
Currently Mr. Stiller is in talks to play the title role of ‘Walter Mitty’ in the movie.
After some set backs, veteran script writer, Steve Conrad (The Weather Man) took over and put together a script that caught the comedian’s interest.
With Stiller on board the studio is really pushing to put this in to production as soon as possible and are currently looking for a good PG director, and the studio is looking to begin filming some time late this fall.
