Sean Penn is in talks to join a new comedy called The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty, which Ben Stiller is directing and starring in. The rest of the cast includes the greatness of Kristen Wiig, Adam Scott, Shirley MacLaine and Patton Oswalt.
The story follows a timid magazine photo manager, played by Stiller, who lives life vicariously through daydreams embarks on a true-life adventure when a negative goes missing.
Penn just completed shooting the Ruben Fleischer directed period cop film The Gangster Squad, and he will next be seen in a film called This Must Be The Place, which was a giant piece of crap. I'm not the biggest fan of Penn these days, it might be fun to actually see him do some comedy again.
