"Life of Pi" as a film?

At Entertainment Weekly they say they're filing this one under, "We'll believe it when we see it." But film director Ang Lee is reported to be in talks to direct a film adaptation of "Life of Pi" by Yann Martel.

Lee is not the first to take an interest.  Directors M. Night Shyamalan and Alfonso Cuarón also considered film versions of the fantasy novel but their projects never came to fruition.

In the novel, a boy named Pi survives a shipwreck and then spends 227 days on a boat on the Pacific Ocean with a tiger named Richard Parker. Published in 2001, "Life of Pi" won the Booker Prize in 2002.
