Ang Lee May Adapt Yann Martel’s Life of Pi in 3-D

life-of-pi.jpgAn adaptation of Yann Martel‘s bestselling Life of Pi seems to be back on track as producers hope to launch the project with Ang Lee (Brokeback Mountain and Hulk) directing a 3-D adaptation.

According to Thompson on Hollywood, the producers are projecting a $70 million for “a 3-D magical fantasy adventure crammed with visual effects.” The screenplay was written by David Magee–who wrote another sort of adaptation with Finding Neverland.

Here’s more from Fox 2000 president Elizabeth Gabler, from the article: “It has a gigantic visual effects component … You can’t put a live tiger in a boat with a child. It has elements of Castaway, when the kid is alone in the boat. You don’t need language to convey what’s on the screen. We need to make the movie for the whole world.”
