Jim Carrey to star in Spielberg's "Walter Mitty"

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.
