Myers in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty remake

MikeMyers.jpgMike Myers is the latest name attached to the attempted remake of the 1947 Danny Kaye classic The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.

I loved Danny Kaye films when I was young, anyway, stop those dancing and singing flashbacks. The remake has been on the go for sometime and according to reports there have been a wide array of names attached to the lead, Jim Carrey, Eddie Murphy, Whoopi Goldberg not to mention big names to direct, Steven Spielberg included. However there's a chance that Mike Myers could get this project off the ground, after all he's great at getting projects made that you just wouldn't think could be or could capture the wallets of a studio.

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty focuses on a daydreaming comic book writer whose imagination enables him to escape to his fantasy world instead of being caught in the noral day to day boring existance he has. However his dreams become true when a mysterious woman hands him a book which she says contains the location of the Dutch crown jewels which have been missing since World War II, and so he finds himself caught up in a Hitchcockian mystery after all.

According to the story in only Myers has been announced, could he also direct or will that land with someone else?
