The hilarious Broadway farce that inspired the classic Warner Bros. film, Mister Roberts was based on Thomas Heggen's classic maritime novel of the same title. Henry Fonda's title character is as compelling and zany as any other fictitious military hero on the big screen during the 1960s. Warner Bros also cashed in on the popularity of the maritime comedy in theaters in the same decade with The Incredible Mr. Limpet, a film adaptation of the novel by Theodore Pratt, combining live-action segments with hand-painted animation.
According to Deadline, Warner Bros. has omitted the film rights to Stephen King's 3-novel trilogy, The Dark Tower, and, since Ron Howard has been tapped by W.B. bosses at the studio's headquarters in Burbank to direct the first of 3 films in the franchise, Howard's company, Imagine, decided to scrap the film series. In the meantime, he's currently filming Race for Universal Pictures and Exclusive Media Group.
Ben Stiller is in the director's chair again, as Twentieth Century Fox's new re-imagining of James Thurber's The Secret Life of Walter Mitty revives the famous Danny Kaye character who daydreams primarily and bamboozles into some outrageous heroes of the past.
Like the Kaye character, Stiller's Walter Mitty is as cunning as every man for himself, especially when he plays multiple roles in countless situations. Unlike Kaye, Mitty is portrayed by Stiller, whose previous big-screen directorial successes have included Reality Bites and Zoolander - he is the son of Jerry Stiller, who
was best known as Kevin James' sidekick on The King of Queens.
