Deadline reports that Ben Stiller is now set to make 'Walter Mitty' his next project. Steve Conrad ("The Weather Man," "The Pursuit Of Happyness") has penned a screenplay that apparently hit the mark with the studio and the star and things are once again moving full steam ahead but it may be a while yet.
A director still needs to be found and Stiller is presumably tied up for the next little. He hits the stage at the end of the month in "House Of Blue Leaves" and provided replacements are found for James Franco and Cate Blanchett, he will shoot Noah Baumbach's "When We Were Young" this summer. But if everything pans out the way it should, 'Walter Mitty' will shoot this fall.
