Production has been underway for a little while now on Ben Stiller‘s directorial follow-up to his hilarious R-rated comedy Tropic Thunder. He’s now tackling a remake of the 1947 classic The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and looks to be going a more family-friendly approach with an ensemble includes Kristen Wiig, Sean Penn, Adam Scott, Shirley MacLaine and Patton Oswalt.

The couple are about 30-40 years older, with complete make-up. There’s also a shot of Scott’s crazy beard.

In theaters now, Ivan Reitman‘s new film, Draft Day, does quite a bit with a hard subject. Part of that is the writing, but a lot of the success on screen is due to the amassing of talent Reitman manages and the flash he implants into ordinary scenes. The life of a GM during a tumultuous and pressure-packed [...]
