Brokeback director in Bollywood!
You read right! Ang Lee is currently in Bollywood hunting around for a cast for his upcoming project. After the success of Slumdog Millionaire it seems as though directors are running towards the east, trying to find their own on-screen gems.
Lee is in search for a cast for a film based on the novel Life of Pi, he is currently in Mumbai and is scheduled to stay there until May 17th. He is staying at the Taj Land’s End with an enormous entourage. Furthermore, he has visited Pondicherry, the location in which the novel takes place. It was a very fast trip and it was guarded with some of the tightest security the industry has to offer. Furthermore, Lee has set up his casting base at the Mehboob Studios and set up a meeting with the shortlisted actors the other day.
With such a talented director in the mix, the results of turing such an epic novel into a film may just turn out to be mind-blasting!
