It looks like Kirsten Dunst didn't call him "Tiger" in the "Spider-Man" movies for nothin'!
Tobey Maguire is set to reunite with director Ang Lee for a small role in "Life of Pi," the highly anticipated adaptation of Yann Martel's bestselling novel, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
"Life of Pi" follows the adventures of a young Indian boy (Suraj Sharma) whose passage to America aboard a freighter ends in a shipwreck somewhere in the Pacific, where he's left to fend for himself on a life raft with an orangutan, a hyena and a Bengal tiger.
The adult Pi (Irrfan Khan) relates his amazing story to a reporter, to be played by Maguire.
"Life of Pi" will mark the third time that Tobey Maguire has worked with director Ang Lee, following the scathing portrait of '70s American suburbia, "The Ice Storm" (1997), and the Civil War epic, "Ride With the Devil" (1999). The film is currently shooting in India.
Meanwhile, Maguire is set to play Nick Carraway in the new adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's "The Great Gatsby," whenever director Baz Luhrmann gets around to making it.
