Ben Stiller’s The Secret Life of Walter Mitty movie is set for release over the Christmas period on 26 December 2013 in the UK.
This remake of James Thurber’s 1939 short story The Secret Life of Walter Mitty became so engrained in people’s psychic at the time that its title character became a dictionary entry – A Walter Mitty is a timid person with larger-than-life daydreams.
Ben Stiller directs this 20th Century Fox film with a cast that includes Kristen Wiig, Shirley MacLaine, Adam Scott, Kathryn Hahn and Sean Penn.
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty tells the story of a day-dreamer who escapes his anonymous life by disappearing into a world of fantasies filled with heroism, romance and action. When his job along with that of his co-worker (Wiig) are threatened, Walter takes action in the real world embarking on a global journey that turns into an adventure more extraordinary than anything he could have ever imagined.
