Directed, produced and starring Ben Stiller, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is the story of “A timid magazine photo manager who lives life vicariously through daydreams embarks on a true-life adventure when a negative goes missing” (IMDb plot summary). This looks like a whimsical comedy/drama with adventure and fantasy elements. The tone of this teaser reminds me of the films of Michel Gondry (The Science of Sleep, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) and Spike Jonze (Being John Malkovich, Adaptation) or even something like Stranger Than Fiction.
With a screenplay by Steve Conrad and co-starring Sean Penn this could even be an Oscar contender. Also in this: Kristen Wiig, Patton Oswalt and Adam Scott. Good for Ben Stiller trying to do something smarter than most of his buddies: I’m looking at you Adam Sandler! The film comes out in theaters Christmas Day 2013. In the meantime check out the this excellent (and different!) teaser and let me know if you look forward to it as well.
