Ang Lee’s ‘Life of Pi’ to open NY Film Festival

NEW YORK — Ang Lee’s “Life of Pi” will open the 50th annual New York Film Festival.

The Film Society of Lincoln Center announced Monday that Lee’s adaptation of the acclaimed novel by Yann Martel will premiere at the festival on Sept. 28.

Lee, whose “The Ice Storm” opened the festival in 1997, is only the fourth filmmaker to twice take the opening night slot. Robert Altman, Pedro Almodovar and Francois Truffaut also share in the distinction.

The 3-D film, a fantasy about a boy marooned on a lifeboat with a Bengal tiger, is due in theatres Nov. 21.

The New York Film Festival runs Sept. 28 to Oct. 14. The Film Society earlier announced that Robert Zemeckis’ “Flight” will close the festival. The full slate will be announced later.
