No More Pi For Night

Only a few days after M. Night Shyamalan decided to make Lady in the Water as his next film at Warner Brothers, Fox 2000 Pictures has begun talks with director Alfonso Cuaron ("Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban") to helm their adaptation of Yann Martel's bestselling novel "Life of Pi".

Cuaron's agent contacted Fox 2000 to offer the director's services when Shyamalan turned his back on the project to which his name has been attached since October 2003. Cuaron is currently casting "Children of Men" at Universal, and a deal needs to be worked out with Warner Brothers, where Cuaron is based.

Thank Goodness. I didn't enjoy the book at all. Maybe M. Night will write, direct and produce yet another original suspense instead.  :)

 I never read it but Alfonso Cuaron is amazing. I will see anything he does.

I'd rather Shyamalan do drama/thriller films anyways.

 I think M. Night should write and direct his own stuff, he shouldn't be adapting any book, or someone elses script. Does anyone remember him for writing Stuart Little?? Nope..

 Alfonso Cuaron, or Jean-Pierre Jeunet would fit better to make this movie.

 Hmm. No one's posted here in awhile, so this post probably counts as talking to myself. ... I just finished reading the book and cannot figure out why Pi's story is supposed to make me believe in God. Did I miss something? Or I am too cynical?....  :unsure:

I don't see Shyalaman's name attached to the movie anywhere at the moment. (I'm still sifting through Google's 2.3 billion hits. :blink: ) Does anyone know if he is producing?

 [Still talking to self, apparently....] Oops. Never mind. I found some Martel quotes that were helpful.

 This actually made me happy. Night should do his own stuff.

 I love Life of Pi, Shyamalan and Alfonso, and I was so glad that both those guys were on for this movie (I really enjoy Alfonso's knack of capturing things just so perfectly and artistically, a lot like why I like Night).  That's too bad Night's no longer on for Pi, it's a very good story, one that reminded me of Night's work as I read it.

Graham: What's furry furry rabbit?
Merrill: It's a game, isn't it?

 Alfonso is doing a movie call "The Children of Men".  It looks good.
See...tell him to see...  Tell Merrill to swing away.

This project is still in limbo. Directors seem to come and go. I wouldn't mind for Night to reconsider.

I just don't know.  I've never been interested in reading the book, I've never really heard anything about it.  I just would rathere Shyamalan kept writing his own stuff or adapt something else.
I see the world Lucius Hunt, just not the way you see it.
