Subscribe to Sean Penn alerts

Sean Penn is in negotiations to star in 'The Secret Life of Walter Mitty'.

The 'Milk' actor looks set to appear opposite Ben Stiller in the fantasy-comedy movie - a remake of the 1947 Danny Kaye film based on James Thurber's short story - as he is being lined up for a small supporting role in the 20th Century Fox production.

Ben is directing the film as well as starring in the lead role as a timid magazine photo manager, who dreams of going on an adventure before finding himself involved in one when he goes in search of a missing negative, Deadline reports.

'Bridesmaids' star Kristen Wiig has been lined up to play the dream girl of Ben's alter-ego, and Adam Scott, Shirley Maclaine and Patton Oswalt are also set to appear in the production.

Sean recently finished filming crime movie 'The Gangster Squad' - which stars Emma Stone, Josh Brolin and Ryan Gosling - which sees him play Los Angeles gangster Mickey Cohen.

The 51-year-old star has recently been seen in the Paolo Sorrentino-directed 'This Must Be The Place' and 2011 motion picture 'The Tree of Life' opposite Brad Pitt and Jessica Chastain.
