 Comment on Ben Stiller In Talks To Direct WALTER MITTY!

After a series of directors from Ron Howard to Steven Spielberg and most recently Gore Verbinski came and went from the remake of the 1947 comedy The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, star Ben Stiller began talks with Fox to take on directing duties.

    Variety reported that Stiller was the likely replacement to direct The Secret Life of Walter Mitty in addition to playing the lead.

    Steve Conrad, writer of Wrestling Ernest Hemingway and The Pursuit of Happyness, continued to work on the script.

    Danny Kaye starred in the original film based on the James Thurber story, about a day dreaming book editor who fantasizes about a series of exciting feats.

    Stiller last directed the showbiz parody Tropic Thunder.

    He appears next in the caper comedy Tower Heist and reunites with his Greenberg director Noah Baumbach on his next comedy While We’re Young.

   No word yet on who will join Stiller on the cast for The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.
