Poor Tobey Maguire — it looks like he won't be a part of Ang Lee's Life of Pi after all, as a writer who interviews the main character.
After joining the film last year, we were pumped to see the actor and director back together again. Unfortunately we won't get to see it happen.
What went wrong?
Tobey is just TOO famous!
Seriously! Plus, the cool thing is that Tobey is actually okay with it!
"I fully support Ang's decision to go a different direction for this role in Life of Pi. Ang shared a lot of the film with me, and what I saw was absolutely beautiful."
Here's what Ang had to say:
"To be consistent with the other casting choices made for the film, I decided to go with an entirely international cast. I very much admire Tobey and look forward to working with him again in the future."
We hope they team up again! The Ice Storm was amazing!
Still, we have a lot of trust in Ang. If he thought this was right, we won't question it!
The flick looks fab, guys!
