When his job along with that of his co-worker 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.
Filmmakers Steven Spielberg, Ron Howard and Mark Waters have all considered remaking this project.
When are you going to take it?
Sean O'Connell: Sometimes I don't. If I like a moment, for me, personally, I don't like to have the distraction of the camera. I just want to stay in it.
Walter Mitty: Stay in it?
Sean O'Connell: Yeah. Right there. Right here.
When Walter Mitty visits Sean O'Connell in the Himalayas, O'Connell uses an old Nikon F3/T camera with what appears to be a Nikon 400/2.8G lens attached. While it's technically possible to use that combination, the lens has no aperture ring and no way to set the aperture on that body. A professional photographer would not use this combination, especially if they preferred vintage equipment.
The making and authorized distribution of this film supported over 15,000 jobs and involved hundreds of thousands of work hours.
The British theatrical version was pre-cut during post-production to secure a PG rating (an uncut 12 rating was available to the distributor). This version was the one released worldwide.
