In light of this season's award hubbub Dev Patel is surely a perfect fit for the star?

My favorite book to be adapted by one the the most consistently brilliant director. You couldn't ask for a better choice to direct a story as poetic as this. There are scenes in this especially near the end that need to be handled with the lightest of touches and Ang Lee certainly can handle these. I also agree, Dev Patel, would be great

I've always thought the only way to do the book justice would be to animate it. Oh well. He'd better not screw it up.

In the right hands, this could be a cracker and Ang Lee, on the surface, seems an almost perfect fit. Loved the book and the twist in the tale has the potential to be one of the most startling in the history of films................................EVER!!

Well you never know. As the article said, he's never been easy to stick a label on. Maybe he'll shoot it in a Scanner Darkly style, or Beowulf motion capture. I'd think it more likely it'll be traditionaly done but you can never be sure with Lee.

One of my favourite books of all time. One of the most overrated directors of all time. Colour me disappointed. Was really looking forward to Jeunet's take. Those who think Ang Lee is right for this obviously read a different book, or thought Hulk was good. One or t'other definitely.

The Ice Storm aside, I've always been underwhelmed by Lee's films.

An adaptation of one of my favourite books, directed by one of my favourite directors? It'll either be perfect or a horrible mess. Will probably have to watch through my fingers!
