After entering talks to star, Ben Stiller has emerged as actor and director of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty remake.
When Stiller was approached to head up the cast, rumours circled that Steven Spielberg, Ron Howard or Gore Verbinski could be sitting in the director's chair.
It had also been previously suggested that Sacha Baron Cohen might star as the mild mannered fantasist.
However, Stiller will take up both duties and 20th Century Fox hope to start filming in January of next year.
