Although he is best known as Spider-Man, actor Tobey Maguire made one of his first strong impressions on film in the 1997 film THE ICE STORM by director Ang Lee (BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN). The two will unite for an adaptation of the international best-seller THE LIFE OF PI. Maguire will play a journalist interviewing the book’s shipwreck survivor later in life. The film is currently shooting on location in India and will be released in December of this year by Fox 2000 as an awards-season entry. The book by Yann Martel has been on the New York Times’ best seller list for several years, making this one of the most anticipated book-to-film adaptations of recent times.
