London (ANI): Oscar winner Ang Lee is being lined up to adapt the novel Life of Pi into a Hollywood movie. The director is in talks over the adaptation of Yann Martel's novel.
The Man Booker prize winning book tells the tale of a lone shipwreck survivor who shares his lifeboat with a hyena, an injured zebra, an orang-utan and a tiger, reports the Telegraph. Studio Fox 2000 is hiring a new screenwriter and Lee is seriously considering the project, according to Variety.
Life of Pi is the best-selling Booker Prize winner of all time and became a global phenomenon after its 2002 win, translated into 40 languages. M Night Shyamalan, director of the Sixth Sense, and Harry Potter's Alfonso Cuaron were previously linked to the project.
