It’s been a couple of years now since Ang Lee won the Best Director Oscar for his ambitious 2012 drama Life of Pi. The filmmaker initially signed on to quickly follow it up with the FX pilot Tyrant, but subsequently dropped out due to exhaustion over the awards campaign for his VFX-heavy adaptation. Just over a year ago, Lee committed to next directing a 3D boxing film for Universal which would depict classic fights—including the Thrilla in Manila—using cutting-edge technology, but word on that film has been very quiet in the ensuing months. Now another project appears to be vying for Lee’s attention, as the filmmaker is reportedly being eyed to helm an adaptation of the Iraq War novel Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk. More after the jump.
