Life of Pi Book Cover Referenced in Film

By Jason Boog Comment

In the recent adaptation of Yann Martel‘s Life of Pi, director Ang Lee included what appears to be a sly reference to the iconic cover art for the book.

Reddit user chrs1979 spotted the image in the film, comparing the images in the photo album embedded above–what do you think?

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt has since published a movie tie-in version with a completely different cover.
