Synopsis: Academy Award-winning director Ang Lee (“Brokeback Mountain,” “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”) directs LIFE OF PI, based upon Yann Martel’s beloved book, which went on to become one of the biggest publishing events of the past decade. An epic adventure of magical realism, LIFE OF PI follows the story of a young man’s incredible survival at sea against almost impossible odds. A remarkable breakthrough in the use of 3D technology, PI will take audiences on an emotionally captivating journey that will inspire, touch and transport them to a place of discovery they will be unable to forget.
In many ways, what Yann Martel says about transforming the book to a Film can apply to many novels these days.
It's difficult to maintain the magic the book has and translate it to screen without ruining the source product; it's something that has to be done right. There seems to be a great deal of care put into The Life of Pi, and is definitely something to look forward to.
