Today, 20th Century Fox has debuted the second and full length trailer for the highly anticipated movie Life of Pi
. Based upon the bestselling book by Yann Martel, the upcoming film tells the story of a young mans incredible survival at sea against impossible odds, due out this December.
A film version of the novel has been in development for years, with M. Night Shyamalan
, Alfonso Cuaron
and others attached to direct. At long last, Oscar winner Ang Lee
(Brokeback Mountain, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) took on the project, and we’ll see his finished flick later this year.
The film stars Suraj Sharma, Tobey Maguire, Gérard Depardieu, Irrfan Khan, Tabu, Adil Hussain, and Ayush Tandon.
Director Ang Lee (Brokeback Mountain, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) creates a groundbreaking movie event about a young man who survives a tragic disaster at sea and is hurtled into an epic journey of adventure and discovery. While marooned on a lifeboat, he forms an amazing and unexpected connection with the ship’s only other survivor — a fearsome Bengal tiger.
