"Life of Pi" by Yann Martel is one of my favorite novels, and I was wondering if it could ever be made into a film. There was talk that M. Night Shyamalan was going to do it some time ago, then that evaporated. Then I hadn't heard anything about it now all of a sudden it's made and coming out in November.
I only hope it does the book justice. The trailer looks gorgeous, but so much of the story is internal and ultimately left to the interpretation of the reader. I hope they don't just lay it all out there as a plot-driven action-adventure narrative.
My only disconnect with the trailer is that I always read Pi as being younger than he appears to be in the film.
