He goes to a fantasy where he becomes his poised opposite. On this journey he trys to find a misplaced image that was taken by a photographer, which is played by Sean Penn. Stiller was involved in the film for a little more then eight years but he never felt that the script was good enough. Steve Conrad rewrote the script to focus more on Mitty’s inner life and less on the bad guy. After the script was rewrote Stiller found it to be “contemporary and relevant.”
