Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Hulk and Life Of Pi director Ang Lee is bringing his unique vision to the sweet science. Deadline reports that the director’s next project will feature real life characters from the world of boxing presented in the kind of eye-popping 3D he utilized with Pi. Set up at Universal, the new film — which is currently untitled — is said to recreate famous fights from the 60s and 70s like Joe Frazier and Muhammad Ali’s Thrilla In Manila.
As Deadline points out, no one would officially respond to questions about the project, so we’re still pretty in the dark as to what the actual plot of the Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon, Rush) script will be. Still, considering how good his past efforts have looked on the big screen, this one should be something of a visual treat.
