Kristen Wiig Will Probably Star in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty


Looks like Kristen Wiig is going to star in Ben Stiller’s remake of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, based on the short-story and worldwide required 8th grade English class reading assignment by James Thurber. Wiig would play “the co-worker about whom Mitty, a henpecked photo manager at a magazine, fantasizes as he dreams his way out of a humdrum life.” The larger-than-life fantasy sequences in that story will probably be a good way to showcase Wiig’s broader comedic talents. Also I bet there will be fun outfits.
