Ben Stiller to direct film adaptation

James Thurber's classic short story "The Secret Lives of Walter Mitty" has already made the leap from print to film once in 1947. Now, according to this article from Variety, a new adaption of this humorous story is being produced by 20th Century Fox, and will be directed by the film's star, Ben Stiller. The story is about a meek, mild-mannered book editor who, tired of his Clark Kent existence, dreams up secret, imaginary lives in which he is a Superman. Read the full story as well as Thurber's tongue-in-cheek autobiographical essay "The Secret Life of James Thurber" in this special illustrated edition available from your Community Library.
