‘The Secret Life of Walter Mitty’ starring and directed by Ben Stiller, and also starring Kristen Wiig, Adam Scott, and Sean Penn will be coming out on Christmas 2013.
The film is based on the 1939 short story by James Thurber that first appeared in The New Yorker and later was compiled in his work ‘My World and Welcome to it’ in 1942. The work is a renowned masterpiece in American literature and was first adapted on the big screen in 1947.
Walter Mitty is someone who is frequently caught in day dreams of his own heroic praise rather than paying attention to his own reality which at sometimes can be quite harsh. He is often ridiculed in his frequent attempts to embellish his true identity with an impressive background with fabricated accolades. Some of his daydreams in the story include being a pilot in a Navy hydroplane, then he is a well decorated surgeon performing a near impossible surgery, an assassin, a Royal Air Force pilot, and pretty much whatever else his wild imagination makes him into. Mitty is a true hopeless dreamer.
