Remember “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty?” It’s Back!

View Comments
CinemaCon 2013 - Day 4

It all started with a short story by James Thurber in 1939. Then Danny Kaye starred in a film adaptation of the story in 1942. Now “The Secret World of Walter Mitty” is back!

Ben Stiller will direct and star in a new film version of the story coming to theaters on Christmas Day.

The film also has a star studded cast including: Kristen Wiig, Shirley MacLaine, Adam Scott, Kathryn Hahn and Sean Penn.

“Walter Mitty” is a timeless character and the story is timeless as well. I remember reading the book when I was in school and watching the old 1942 version with Danny Kaye and now I can’t wait to see this new 21st Century version.

The trailer is really cool set to “Dirty Paws” by Of Monsters and Men.
