From print to reel

lifeofpi

I have read Yann Martel’s Life of Pi years ago. It was good. It is about the story of a young boy who survived a shipwreck and is joined by a tiger in the middle of the ocean. It is a story of overcoming our fear amidst adversities that come our way. It is also awash with rich imaginative happenings. It even mentioned Manila in some part, because the ship made a pit stop in the city before going to the Pacific Ocean.

The book will now be turned into a movie, and it will be directed by Ang Lee.

Sara Gruen’s love story about starstruck partner in a travelling circus. It feels like a telenovela you had seen on TV. Again, this is also being turned into a movie and will be directed by Francis Lawrence.
