Owen Wilson Will Headline "Walter Mitty" for Paramount

by | July 13, 2005 | Comments

Owen Wilson ("Wedding Crashers") will play the lead role in Paramount’s remake of "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty," says The Hollywood Reporter. "Wilson would star as the title character, a quintessential daydreamer whose vivid imagination allows him to escape from the mundane constraints of his ordinary life."

The original film, produced in 1947 and starring Danny Kaye ("The Court Jester"), has long been a topic of remake discussion, although with Wilson and director Mark Waters ("Mean Girls") on board, things look to be moving ahead quite smoothly.

Screenwriter Richard LaGravenese ("The Fisher King") based his screenplay more on the original 1939 story by James Thurber than on Norman Z. McLeod‘s big-screen adaptation.
