As Shyamalan gets everything ready for his upcoming
Warner Bros. feature Lady in the Water, it seems Fox 2000 is working just as
quickly to find a replacement to helm their adaptation of Yann Martel's
bestselling novel Life of Pi.
Shyamalan had been attached to the picture since October
2003. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban helmer Alfonso Cuarón is currently
casting Children of Men over at Universal and Fox must get a few things
worked out with Warner Bros. to obtain Cuarón's services, but Variety does say
that negotiations are going fast.The PLOT: Life of Pi follows the story of Pi
Patel, son of a zookeeper, who leaves India
with his family to emigrate to America,
along with their zoo animals. Along the way, the ship sinks and Pi is left
stranded at sea in a lifeboat along with a hyena, an orangutan, a wounded
zebra, and Richard Parker, a 450-pound Bengal tiger.Soon, the tiger eats all but Pi, whose knowledge of animal
instincts allows him to coexist with the animal for 227 days when suddenly they
finally land on the coast of Mexico
and the story takes a fantastical turn.
