It's the Eye of the Tiger on the New Poster for Ang Lee's 'Life of Pi'
As Sony pursues director Ang Lee to take on the gestating Cleopatra biopic starring Angelina Jolie, the filmmaker is busy finishing up his adaptation of Life of Pi. Now a new poster has arrived putting that tiger front and center in the story of an Indian boy (Suraj Sharma) whose boat transferring his family and their entire zoo sinks, and he ends up stuck on a lifeboat with a tiger (and zebra, hyena) for over 200 days. We've already gotten a glimpse of the whimsical tale in action, complete with the tiger fighting the boy for fish on the lifeboat, not to mention a beautiful full length trailer, and this looks to be quite an adventure. Look!
Here's the new poster for Ang Lee's adaptation of Life of Pi, found via IMPAwards:
Life of Pi is the story of an Indian boy named Pi, a zookeeper's son who finds himself in the company of a hyena, zebra, orangutan, and a Bengal tiger after a shipwreck sets them adrift in the Pacific. Life of Pi, based on Yann Martel's novel, is being directed in 3D by Oscar winning Taiwanese filmmaker Ang Lee, of Taking Woodstock, Lust Caution, Brokeback Mountain, Hulk and Crouching Tiger previously. The cast includes Irrfan Khan, Adil Hussain and Tabu, in addition to the animals and Pi, as it also looks like there's quite a bit going on in this. Fox already has Life of Pi scheduled for release November 21st this year. Thoughts?
