I read Life of Pi by Yann Martel way back when it first came out in 2001. Aah, those were the carefree days when I read to my heart’s content and was actually able to get my hands on books as soon as they were published.
Anyway, I was unaware that Life of Pi was being made into a movie (which world am I living in?) until I chanced upon The Literary Bunny’s blog and saw that there was a trailer out.
As per Wikipedia, the movie is being directed by Ang Lee (he has previously directed two of my fave movies – Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Sense and Sensibility), the actor playing Pi is a newcomer Suraj Sharma, and the movie is due out in November 2012.
I just can’t wait to see how it will shape up. This is a rather difficult movie to film, and it could be just mind-blowingly awesome or mind-numbingly dull.
Based on the trailer here, how do you think it will shape up? I think it will all depend on how the end is handled.
