Jim Carrey and Steven Spielberg are teaming up to remake the classic "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty", reports Variety. Samuel Goldwyn Jr. has been trying for nearly a decade to mount a proper remake of the 1947 comedy, in which Kaye played a timid fellow whose daydreams of being a swashbuckling hero were played out in fantasy sequences. The movie was based on a short story by humorist James Thurber. The film is expected to be be readied in the next twelve months.
