I watched Life of Pi last night. Found it a bit tough to get into at first, but once things kicked into gear, I was quite captivated. And then afterwards...it's the kind of movie that stays with you and you keep thinking about it. Man, do I love Ang Lee and think he and Deepa Mehta are my favourite directors of all time. I checked imdb.com and then Wikipedia to see what he'll be doing next. The only listing is executive producer for a TV series called "Tyrant". Here's the brief synopsis for the FX show from imdb.com:
I didn't recognize the names of anyone who will be in the show. Wikipedia says Lee was set to direct the pilot, but that he quit it to take a break from his "hectic schedule". Wonder if that referred to the publicity he did for Life of Pi? Cause I hadn't seen any mention of what he'll be working on next, so...there's the imdb message boards! Chatter about him directing Cleopatra starring Angelina Jolie (I'm all in!!).Series tells the story of an unassuming American family drawn into the workings of a turbulent Middle Eastern nation.
but there is a teaser trailer.
