Jean-Pierre Jeunet is set to direct Fox 2000's adaptation of the Man Booker Prize-winning Yann Martel novel "Life of Pi"

"Life of Pi," the drama - fantasy - adventure flick based on the Man Booker Prize-winning Yann Martel novel of the same name, is going to be brought into life. Jean-Pierre Jeunet has begun writing the script along with Guillaume Laurant, his collaborator on "Amelie" and "A Very Long Engagement."

Besides, Jeunet also is slated to direct. Meanwhile, Fox 2000 studio is about to start the film production next summer, with part of the film will likely be shot in India.

"Life of Pi" follows the story of a 16-year-old boy's voyage from India to Canada, a trip that begins on a freighter carrying animals his father is transporting from the zoo. The ship sinks and the boy is the sole human survivor, sharing a lifeboat with a hyena, an injured zebra and a hungry tiger.
