Life of Pi director Ang Lee reveals plans to do movie in PH

We’re crossing our fingers.

Emmie Velarde of the Philippine Daily Inquirer reports that Chinese-American director Ang Lee, a two-time Oscar winner for best director, is planning to do a movie soon in the Philippines.

The report explained that Lee, in a press conference held on Thursday (November 28) in Manila, did not give details of the movie he has in mind although a source said "it could be a boxing feature in 3-D." He is in the country for the two-day homage event, "A Salute to Ang Lee," organized by the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office (Teco).


Lee has won a total of 12 Academy Awards, nine Golden Globes and other prestigious awards for his prowess in directing films. Some of his critically-acclaimed works include Life of Pi in 2012, Brokeback Mountain in 2005, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon in 2000, and Sense and Sensibility in 1995.
