Icelandic nature in Ben Stiller´s latest film

2013.08.20

Ben Stiller's newest project, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, in which a daydreaming, shy magazine photo manager embarks on a true-life adventure when a negative goes missing, was largely shot in Iceland in 2012. The first trailer from the film can be seen here. It depicts picturesque Icelandic nature in all its glory, from the small town of Stykkishólmur to extensive glaciers, mountains and, erm, eskimoes. “Dirty Paws” by Icelandic band Of Monsters And Men can be heard during the trailer. The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is written and directed by Stiller, who also plays the leading role. It is a remake of the eponymous 1947 film starring Danny Kaye. When Stiller ran into Russell Crowe at Reykjavik Airport, the latter told him “You gotta dominate the weather.” Crowe had been there for Darren Aronofsky’s next film, Noah. Judging from the trailer, Stiller achieved that feat tremendously. The Secret Life of Walter Mitty will hit theatres at Christmas.
