LOS ANGELES, March 31 (UPI) -- A remake of "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" will link three generations of the famed Goldwyn filmmaking family.

Samuel Goldwyn Jr. and his son John Goldwyn are teaming up to produce the remake of the 1947 Samuel Goldwyn film for Paramount Pictures, The Hollywood Reporter said Wednesday.

DreamWorks and Steven Spielberg are no longer involved in the project, although Jim Carrey is retaining his first-look option to star.

This film marks the first time Samuel Goldwyn Jr., son of legendary producer Samuel Goldwyn, and John Goldwyn, who recently segued into a production deal at Paramount after stepping down as Paramount Pictures co-president, have joined forces on a film.
