"The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" will soon be revealed as Owen Wilson has reached the deal to star as its title character, a quintessential daydreamer whose vivid imagination allows him to escape from the mundane constraints of his ordinary life. The film, which is the remake of the 1947 Danny Kaye classic, will be directed by Mark Waters with Richard LaGravenese wrote the screenplay. In details, the plot will not be based on the original movie but it will more or less closer to the spirit and content of the original source material, the 1939 James Thurber story.
