, best known for his blockbuster Pirates Of The Caribbean
trilogy, will next helm a remake of Fox's classic The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty
With a script by Steve Conrad
, who wrote Verbinski's The Weather Man
, the story will follow Walter Mitty, a wimpy comic book writer who dreams of being a hero and who suddenly finds himself caught up in an adventure trying to find the Dutch crown jewels that had been missing since World War II.
There is no word yet on who will take the lead role of Walter, but given Verbinski's track record with the eclectic Johnny Depp
, he could be a contender.
Verbinski will first complete Paramount Pictures Rango
before moving forward with any other production.
