When Walter is riding the bicycle on the Iceland country road, the white line in the middle of the road changes between shots from a double line to a single broken line to a single continuous line.

Revealing Mistakes
When Walter is floating in the water, his shoulders are well out of the water because he's standing on a hidden underwater platform. In real life, he'd be up to his neck and have trouble keeping his head above water.
Actors Jim Carrey, Owen Wilson, Mike Myers and Sacha Baron Cohen were all considered for the role of Mitty during the development of this film.

Filmmakers Steven Spielberg, Ron Howard and Mark Waters have all considered remaking this project.

Actor Will Ferrell was also considered for the role of Walter Mitty.

The music in the film's first trailer was set to the song called "Dirty Paws" performed by the Icelandic band Of Monsters and Men.
