Kristen Wiig joins Mitty film?

Kristen Wiig looks set to join Ben Stiller in the remake of The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty.

The actress - whose fame has rocketed since the release of Bridesmaids last year - is currently in negotiations about playing the female lead in the upcoming film, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Kristen, 38, would play a co-worker who pops up in Walter Mitty's fantasy life in the remake of the 1947 comedy, which Ben will both star in and direct.

Earlier this month it was reported that Oscar-winner Shirley MacLaine was in the frame to play Mitty's mother, but so far it isn't known who else will star in the flick.

Production on Walter Mitty is set to begin in April in New York and Iceland.
