Ben Stiller snapped this photo outside of the G train in Greenpoint and posted it to his verified Twitter account yesterday.
Stiller was in the neighborhood shooting The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, which according to IMDB is about “a timid magazine photo manager who lives life vicariously through daydreams [and] embarks on a true-life adventure when a negative goes missing.” It’s a loose remake of a 1947 film. A daydreaming magazine photo manger? Sounds about right for Greenpoint (although maybe not for Stiller.) The film stars Stiller, Kristin Wiig, and Adam Scott.
In other Greenpoint on-location news, if you’re wondering what that pile of Christmas trees near Berry Park is, that was from a shoot for an upcoming Paul Rudd movie.
