"A Little Game" for Ang Lee



"Brokeback Mountain" helmer Ang Lee is on board to direct "A Little Game Without Consequence" for Focus Features.

Things now look brighter for Focus Features' "A Little Game Without Consequence" after it got imploded for months due to the departure of helmer Gabriele Muccino also stars Jim Carrey and Cameron Diaz, many thanks to Ang Lee.

Yes, the renowned filmmaker has accepted the offer to direct the drama comedy from Focus co-chairman James Schamus and is expected to work on the flick after the wrapping-up of "Lust, Caution." Schamus in the meantime reportedly will take a stab at rewriting the script, originally penned by Allan Loeb.

Adapted from the French play by Jean Dell and Gerald Sibleyras, "Game" presents a story of a Brooklyn couple who pretend to break up, only to realize that their friends never liked them as couple to begin with. Alain Chabat, Stephanie Danon, and Domenico Procacci are all set to produce.

Known as the frequent collaborator to Schamus, Lee has worked together with the man in eleven big screen features to date, including "The Ice Storm" and "Brokeback Mountain." For the latter work, he was bestowed Best Director honor at the 78th annual Academy Awards held last year.
